Great recap of Verge blogger Paul Miller’s year away from the Internet. Excerpt:
“I’d read enough blog posts and magazine articles and books about how the internet makes us lonely, or stupid, or lonely and stupid, that I’d begun to believe them. I wanted to figure out what the internet was "doing to me,” so I could fight back. But the internet isn’t an individual pursuit, it’s something we do with each other. The internet is where people are.“
The Internet is where the people are. It’s inexorably linked to our culture, woven into our relationships and drizzled across our lives.
