Are You Time Poor Or Time Rich?

According to an article by Lightspeed, there are two types of internet users- the time rich and the time poor. Time Poor use the net to get things done because they need to be efficient with their time. These people appreciate fast search engines, Google widgets, and RSS feeders. Unlike time poor people, Time Rich individuals use the net as a time waster - you know who you are! These people love social networking sites, online chatting, eBay, and enjoy video/gaming sites. I think I'm a good mix of both, which one are you?

I am definitely the time poor type and it's horrible. But I know why I'm like that : too many extra activities. Here are 8 reasons you are always out of time http://blog.cyclope-series.com/2010/10/29/8-reasons-you-are-always-out-of-time/

Right now I'm Time Rich, but I definitely love the times at work when I am Time Poor and can use the Internet to find exactly what I am looking for in a quick manner.

Ditto to the previous posters. I use some facets of the Interwebs to do things faster so I have more time for things like the Sugar sites!

For all the time I spend in World of Warcraft, I MUST be time rich, lol.

If I spend so much time on popsugar, then yes, I am time rich!

Is there a phrase for both? Or for someone who's plugged in 18 hours a day (gotta sleep sometimes). I waste so much time on the internet, that I need to be efficient (fast searches, rss reader, etc.) the rest of the time!

I'm certainly a mixture of both. Since I've made a career of working with technology and the media, I tend to spend a bit more time on the computer trying to figure out what's next.
