Maslow's Hierarchy and Web Addiction
This is funny, but on a more serious note, I do think the issue of web and phone overuse and addiction actually has a great deal to do with Maslow's hierarchy. Specifically, as a culture we have the bottom two levels basically nailed but are woefully starving, perhaps to an unprecedented extent, for the top four. The Internet sometimes gives us the ability to gain those top four levels, but most often, it simply gives us the illusion.
