From Twitter – Yes, we do switch off.

We all switch off from our connection to the internet, at least by diverting our eyes to a printed page. We are not yet fully adopted citizens of the web, consuming content all our waking time. I can’t see a future where we are looking at screens with out pause or break. Perhaps though, screens are just a temporary measure until we can live up to cyborg ideals and have the images directly beamed in to our brains.
