According to Australia’s Department of Wishful Thinking, surfing the net at work actually makes employees more productive. The research carried out at the University of Melbourne concluded that people who engage in WILB (workplace Internet leisure browsing) within a reasonable limit -- less than 20 percent of the total work day -- are 9 percent more productive overall than those who don’t. “Short and unobtrusive breaks, such as a quick surf of the internet, enables the mind to rest itself, leading to a higher total net concentration for a days work, and as a result, increased productivity,” claimed the doctor who led this study before going back to surfing for porn.
