  • Carnegie Mellon University: Exploration of Social Implications of Internet Use for Families | Markle | Advancing America's Future
    consequences of using computers and the Internet Kraut First this is one of the few pieces of research that has looked at all at the social and psychological consequences of using the Internet Second unlike some national surveys this research measures actual usage Our data tell us that there is a lot of error in people s reports about how much they use the Internet Third and most important we measure Internet use social involvement and psychological well being at multiple time points As a result we can rule out the possibility that being socially isolated lonely and depressed causes people to use the Internet more and can discover what the consequences are of using the Internet once initial social and psychological state are taken into account QUESTION Society survived the introduction of the telephone and television Do you think we ll survive the Internet Kiesler We humans are very confident very smart and very adaptive So of course we will survive the Internet But we can make changes in technology too We made changes in the telephone automated switching privacy protections universal service and in television Mr Rogers and Sesame Street and rating systems We expect changes in the Internet We hope the basis for these changes will be research rather than hyperbole or scare tactics based on anecdotes Mukophadhyay Society changes But the Internet is changing faster and will continue to do so for some time It ll be a while before we come to terms with the Internet QUESTION There are lots of other technologies that distract people from their social relationships Is the Internet worse than them Kraut When people watch TV play video games or even read they are withdrawing from social interaction We can t directly compare whether spending an hour on the Internet is better or worse than spending it watching TV Other researchers have shown effects of watching TV that are similar to the ones we see for using the Internet My personal opinion is similar to those expressed by some of the parents in our study They think that much of what their kids do on line is a waste of time but it s a better waste of time than watching TV because its more personally engaging active social and literate Mukophadhyay There are two issues here First it s too early to have a definitive opinion about the Internet Second there is a fundamental difference between the Internet and TV or any other household technologies The Internet is so flexible and has so many possibilities We would probably see a wide range of impact from the Internet QUESTION If the Internet is having these negative effects why are people using it so much Kraut It s important to remember that we have only looked at a small set of the possible effects that the Internet is having We haven t investigated whether using the Internet provides job relevant skills for people gives them useful information for work or school allows them to organize their home lives or purchases more efficiently changes their self esteem or had any number of compensating benefits It is possible that all things considered the Internet is actually good for people On the other hand we have many other examples of people engaging in behavior that is bad for them either because the immediate experience is pleasurable even though the long term consequences are bad or because the cost to gain some pleasure is so low TV is the classic example Adults watch over two hours of TV per day and spend less than 60 minutes visiting with friends and conversing with them even though they much prefer socializing to watching TV The reason sees to be that watching TV is easier than socializing even though adults don t like watching TV that much Mukophadhyay People believe that the Internet is here to stay It is the way to go for the future They do not want to miss the boat Let us also not forget that the Internet is a valuable tool for getting information and even for communication QUESTION We re just not talking about Internet addicts are we Should we ALL be concerned about the findings Kiesler We didn t see a sudden drop in psychological well being or social involvement when people reached a certain number of hours of usage Our results show a linear effect which means the more Internet the more the negative results It is important to emphasize that this research report doesn t apply to educational and learning effects of the Internet Our data suggest that there may be a tradeoff here with more usage leading to better computer skills or worldly knowledge and even self esteem enhancements even while social involvement declines somewhat Mukophadhyay We re talking about average people who use the Internet heavily and experience negative consequences The lesson is that one should not run away from friends and families and escape into cyberspace QUESTION How can we recognize susceptibility in ourselves in other words when can we as individuals recognize that we may be entering a danger zone of Internet usage Kiesler Many people do things too much Eating quarts of ice cream at night smoking three packs a day and sitting at the computer 10 hours at a time Many people know very well when they are in a danger zone and they must decide to change their behavior themselves Most people probably do We are planning to analyze our sample over a somewhat longer time period to see who drops and who doesn t and how their own behavioral changes affect their well being QUESTION If teens are afflicted more by loneliness and depression brought on by Internet use do you have any useful advice for parents schools or college counselors Kiesler Send them to camp encourage them to play sports help them be with real life friends Kraut My teenaged kids have access to the Internet which I pay for

    little over half the subjects are female users a quarter of them belong to minorities The subject pool also represents a fairly wide income range Of the different demographic groups teenagers seem the most vulnerable to potential negative effects What s more teenagers used the Internet for more hours than did adults Mukhopadhyay offers the following advice to parents The basic objective is to maintain open communication and to stay vigilant As far as the computer and Internet go you can put the machine in a public place in the living room or kitchen rather than the basement or the kid s room This will automatically ensure that your teen does not use the Internet too much Carnegie Mellon s scientists believe the findings will spark a debate not only for Internet users and researchers but also for government agencies looking at growth of the Internet and for companies that write Internet software Scherlis notes We are not branding the Internet as either socially good or bad The Internet is a complex and multi faceted social phenomenon and it is evolving rapidly It was created more than 20 years ago for sharing technical information among scientists It s really only recently that the Internet has become a public resource and the average citizen who uses the Net has largely inherited this set of services Our results show that there may be real benefits from greater research and development to the broad area of user level communication and information services Both industry and government can foster this growth through research into new services experimentation evaluation and standards development The research was sponsored by the National Science Foundation the Markle Foundation and a consortium of computer companies Apple Computer Hewlett Packard Panasonic

coordinated the congressional delegation trip to the United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and helped to direct Rock the Vote s Motor Voter campaign Moffett graduated with highest honors from Wesleyan University Leading Cyber Experts Call for Organized Academic Movement to Study the Virtual World s Impact on Society NEW YORK NY Some of the world s leading experts on virtual communities and the Internet say society must create formal inter disciplinary forms of research to better examine the powerful impact the Internet is having on our boardrooms classrooms courts and legislatures The call to have more robust and dedicated courses of study of life online at the world s top universities was the centerpiece of a recent M I T Markle Foundation panel Virtual Communities Questions Theories and Opportunities Panelists are now part of an effort to organize a worldwide conference at M I T intended to gather social scientists in fields ranging from Sociology and Psychiatry to Architecture and the Humanities slated for the fall of 1998 The panelists joined a multi discipline group of top M I T scholars including Sociologist Sherry Turkle and M I T Artificial Intelligence Lab Scientist Roger Hurwitz in setting the agenda for the adoption of formal courses of study on how cyberspace impacts society Tens of millions of people are sitting in front of screens all day and that s influencing the way we think the way we identify with ourselves and the way we socialize said panel participant and noted author Howard Rheingold A lot of decisions about how our children and grandchildren will be able to communicate in the future are being made on the basis of remarkably little knowledge but the number of people doing research on the subject could fit in a small room We need a much larger better funded sphere of research on the subject said Rheingold whose pivotal book The Virtual Community Homesteading on the Electronic Frontier has been acclaimed for delving into how we behave differently online and offline The panel also included lively discussion on how to safeguard the free and open content control of the Internet in the future Amy Bruckman an M I T PhD and Georgia Tech faculty member who has created virtual communities for children and professionals warned of the Disney Dilemma or a growing domination of Internet content by media and entertainment conglomerates She mentioned concerns raised in a recent meeting held with the creators of Disney Online a children s site open only to paid subscribers in which she clashed with Disney s philosophy about controls in the structure of its virtual community Their plans are in some ways oxymoronic said Bruckman The great promise of the Net is the way people are contributing and how users are creating content But if you let people contribute content it s not always going to be squeaky or Disney perfect Will the polished perfect content overwhelm the imperfectly created content Bruckman also dismissed conventional wisdom alleging that participation in Virtual Communities somehow leads to deviant behavior As with anyone managing a gathering of people Bruckman said you have to be prepared to manage the one weirdo who can do a lot of damage Bruckman recommended strategy for manage troublesome participants lay the same ground rules you would if you were hosting a party in a private home Panelist and UCLA scholar Marc Smith who has launched an exhaustive study to map traffic and behavior in the myriad of different UseNet discussion groups said We don t know how group dynamics or political power are developed yet in social cyberspaces Smith said that 1 2 million different people had posted to the Usenet in the past ten days and pointed out that the wide majority are participating not during leisure time but from the office during 11 a m to 2 p m The Usenet is distributed by a large decentralized anarchy and yet its still robust after 17 years said Smith By examining the Usenet in aggregate over time we ll find behavior and patterns we d never expect For example one of the most popular cross posting patterns is between alt fashion and alt dieting University of Toronto sociologist Barry Wellman criticized most research on cyberspace behavior as being filled with traveller s tales or unscholarly antecdotes Nonetheless Wellman believes that research that applies foundations of sociology to the Internet will reveal some new social behaviors such as the unforseen cyber side effect of a Toronto suburb of wired homes he is studying Homeowners who were promised high bandwidth access video phones and other experimental technologies have now begun to use the Internet connections provided in their homes to organize a protest against the developer who they claim has not delivered much of the technical wizardry promised in the suburb s marketing material We have to understand that people have online lives and offline lives said Wellman These people are using an online community to develop offline relationships They re building their own political organization and a new kind of civic community We are just beginning to recognize the importance of cyberspace as a field of study Many essential questions about the nature of democratic life about interest groups and the establishment of new forms of community now confront us said David Thorburn an organizer of the Media in Transition project and a Professor of Literature and Director of the M I T Communications Forum This emerging on line culture is already a major presence in our society and we must begin to classify describe and evaluate its impact Virtual Communities Questions Theories Opportunities is the latest panel discussion in the 18 month long Media in Transition project a collaboration of the M I T Communications Forum the M I T Media Studies Program and the Markle Foundation The primary goal of the project is to establish a conversation across a wide range of academic professional and social disciplines on the impact of new media technology on society Moreover the project will examine the roles of political legal social and cultural institutions in mediating and shaping technological change Both the Virtual Community panel and the project will aim to nourish a sense of history by comparing older periods of media transition with our contemporary experience of technological change and instability The Media in Transition project will consist of a program of seminars forums lecture series and cyberspace activities that will be held at M I T during 1997 and 1998 It will conclude with a national conference in 1998 The governing board of The Media In Transition project includes leading M I T faculty members authors and experts

of Humanities Edward Barrett Senior Lecturer Program in Writing and Humanistic Study Markle Foundation President and noted media studies visionary Lloyd Morrisett and conference co organizer Henry Jenkins Professor of Literature and the Director of the Film and Media Studies Program at M I T in addition to Thorburn and Hurwitz The Media In Transition project is funded by New York City based

    based means to share information with their patients Many Doctors and Patients Perceive Gaps in Their Communications Read the Survey Overview See All Results Key Findings Nearly all doctors say their patients sometimes or most times forget potentially important things they are told Substantial portions of both doctors and patients say key information is sometimes forgotten or lost in their interactions Nearly half of the public perceives that their main doctor is the one who should keep their most accurate complete health and medical records But 2 in 5 of both public and physician groups say it is the patient not doctors who should perform such a role 15 percent of the public perceives that no one is performing this role for them Observations There are contrasting perceptions between the public and doctors about the frequency of potentially important information being lost in doctor patient interactions 1 of 3 of the doctors say they sometimes forget or lose track of potentially important things their patients tell them Similar proportions of patients 40 percent and doctors 38 percent said patients themselves not doctors should be the ones who maintain the most accurate complete records about themselves 15 percent of the public perceives that no one is performing the role of keeping the most accurate complete version of health and medical records for them Large Majorities of the Public and Physicians Agree on Information Sharing Priorities for Health IT Read the Survey Overview See All Results Key Findings For public subsidies of health IT to be well spent roughly 4 in 5 of the public and doctors favor privacy protections and requirements that participating hospitals and doctors share information to better coordinate care cut unnecessary costs and reduce medical errors Both groups agree on the importance of requirements that publicly supported technology be used to measure progress and improve outcomes for chronic diseases 62 percent of the public and 49 percent of physicians express the importance of requirements to give patients secure online copies of their personal health information Observations Roughly 80 percent majorities of both groups say the following are important to ensure the health IT subsidies will be well spent Protect privacy Share information to Cut unnecessary costs Coordinate patient care Reduce medical errors Both groups appear to want accountability by agreeing on the importance of goals and progress measurement High levels of public physician agreement on priorities for health IT program but low levels of familiarity with the program suggests an opportunity for more communications with both doctors and the public Personal Health Working Group Final Report From November 2002 through May 2003 a group of health information experts and consumer advocates met as the Personal Health Working Group PHWG of the Markle Connecting for Health collaborative The 21 working group members represented government

Environment U S State Department Carla Hills Co Chairman Chairman and CEO Hills Company International Consultants Second Letter on the Markle Economic Future Initiative Dear Friends America has been defined by a simple aspiration that everyone in this country should have the freedom to dream and the opportunity to create a better life This is our American Dream and inherent to its strength is the belief that hard work talent and creativity not class or birthright can breed success It is this Dream that helped create what is perhaps our country s greatest source of economic strength and national pride the great American middle class Yet something is going terribly wrong The vital middle class is in undeniable decline and with that so is faith that the American Dream is possible to

losing the spirit that defines us What We Can Do The challenges are great but some solutions are hiding in plain sight As always the American people are our most precious asset We are famously
