No. Sometimes I wish I could, but I think my brains been rewired to require constant input. Sometimes I can distract myself with a good book or magazine for a few hours, but all day? No can do.

Edit : After reading the article I see they're happy with even a few hours. I'll try.

Introduction
Mike Wise is a journalist with CBC TV in Toronto.  He hosts the iDesk segment on CBC News: Toronto, each night at 5, 5:30 and 6:00 in Toronto. He looks at the impact of technology, the Internet and social media on our daily lives, as well as on the daily news. He also appears daily on CBC Radio's Here and Now.

Most recently, Mike was the Ontario Legislative reporter for CBC TV and Newsworld, a beat he held for seven years, three Premiers, four opposition leaders and two provincial elections.

Most recently, Mike was the Ontario Legislative reporter for CBC TV and Newsworld, a beat he held for seven years, three Premiers, four opposition leaders and two provincial elections. While there, he initiated several groundbreaking journalism projects aimed at finding new ways of connecting viewers with the world of politics.  His award winning series "Queen's Park: Making the Grade" followed several high school students as they developed their own private member's bills, attracted political support, and ultimately saw their bills introduced and debated in the Ontario Legislature.  He also collaborated with Student Vote and Facebook on a series called "The Great Canadian Wish List."  It marked the first time the social networking site had partnered with broadcaster.

 

Mike holds an honours degree in Political Studies from Queen’s University in Kingston.  He started at CBC when he was just 17 and still in high-school.  One of his first responsibilities was to work on 1988 federal election broadcast, even though he wasn’t legally old enough to vote. 

His work appears on the CBC's supper hour newscasts, The National, CBC Radio, CBC Newsworld, and online on CBC.CA
