Observation on blog traffic

Since the government shutdown, my hit counter has dropped by over 2/3's. There must be a corollary to  this postulate:
The time people have spent waiting for web pages to load has canceled out all the productivity gains of the information age.
The obvious assumption is that the 2/3's can be attributed to government employees who spend a lot of time surfing the Web at work.  Do you have any other explanation?
