Uh, oh...looks like productivity will be down

Workers spend 551,000 years reading blogs

Trade paper AdAge.com reports that American workers would waste the equivalent of 551,000 years during 2005 reading blogs, online web diaries and gossip sheets, which have exploded in numbers in recent years.

About 35 million workers - one in four of the labour force in the United States - spend 3 1/2 hours, or 9 per cent, of their working week on blogs, the survey found.

Well, I guess that means we'll all just have to stop e-mailing so we can blog instead.
