Are You Time Rich, Time Poor, or Both?

Would you describe yourself as Methodical, Competitive, Spontaneous, or Humanistic? Which of these terms would your friends, family, and co-workers use to describe you? Does your behavior online sometimes find you acting like more than just one of these types? Do you sometimes operate in different modes, depending on the site you’re visiting?

Over on the Lightspeed Venture Partners blog, Jeremy Liew insists that, “Broadly speaking, there are two types of internet user: Time Rich…and Time Poor [1].”

Time Poor people use the internet to get things done. They are very task focused, and their favorite websites help them use their precious time more efficiently…

Time Rich people use the internet to kill some time. They are bored. They are willing to be diverted and entertained…

Might this be a bit too broad? Future Now’s Jeffrey Eisenberg shared his comments [2] on the subject. After all, we’ve concluded that there are only two types of blog readers in this world: those who comment [3], and those who don’t [3]. ;)
