To me the difference is being able to exercise self-control and to have a grasp of reality. Perhaps even a stake in society, such as a family to feed, job to perform, home to repair.
A little groundedness (is that a word?) goes a long way toward being able to successfully navigate among any new tech that comes along and manage it to your own benewfit, as opposed to using it as a refuge or escape.
