Junior Boomers

In The Net

By Charlotte Mulhern

Name and age: Caleb Murphy, 15

Grade: 10th

Location: Earlville, New York

Bits on bytes: "My parents have had a computer for as long as I can remember," says Murphy. Today he uses his computer to converse through e-mail, play games, do homework and visit chat rooms.

Internet opinion: "I love it," says Murphy, who first surfed the Net nearly two years ago. He's since cut down the time spent online "to make room for more important things."

Weekly computer use: 12 hours--more than he watches television

Favorite site: Ultimate Band List, a compilation of bands with links to their Web pages

All in the family: Murphy's younger brother plays games on the family computer; his younger sister uses the Internet.

Future focus: To become a doctor
