Why the Flu Sucks With & Without the Internets

Last week, I was stuck working from home with the flu.
Day 295 - 2.17.09 - Sicksicksick.
While stuck in isolation in my apartment (I did not want to subject my coworkers to this virus strain), I started to make a mental list of how the internet was helping and hindering my recovery:

Helping:

- Able to VPN into meetings and check email

- Unlimited entertainment with Hulu, Netflix and Internet-enabled TV

- Online ordering for Food delivery

- Ability to chat with friends without straining voice

Hindering:

-       Able to VPN into meetings and check email

-       More distractions = less sleep?
