a year without internet

Day 26, Sunday: Something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you'd like.

THE INTERNET ISN'T AN INDIVIDUAL PURSUIT, IT'S SOMETHING WE DO WITH EACH OTHER
Paul Miller - from "I'm still here"

i found this link through another blogger a couple months ago and the title intrigued me so i clicked over. i'll be honest, i usually go to things like this, read the first bit and then get distracted and never go back to finish but i couldn't stop reading this one.

i'm still here: back online after a year without the internet.

it was so interesting to me to read about life for a year without internet and how different the outcome was for this guy than what he anticipated his year to be. in a world where people are so ready to bash the internet, i loved this perspective on how connected it helps one feel even in the loneliest of moments.

i'd love to hear your thoughts on it.
