After watching the PBS digital nation special I was pretty amazed at the portion with the Asian students going to a “computer rehab”. They all had to admit they had a problem with computer usage and it was negatively affecting their health. I felt like it was a drug rehab show. I suppose it is a similar idea, just strange it was applied to people with a problem of computer usage. This is something we are not accustomed to here in the U.S. Computers are generally viewed as a good thing with positive effects. The school even has posters with sayings and facts listing the dangers of overusing computers/ computer games, which is a currently a large problem for the youth of the area.
