Logging Off The Internet
from the can-you-do-without-it dept
Steve Cisler is getting some publicity for his decision to log off the internet for a while and drive around the country trying to figure out how people get by without the internet. While some of his friends think it’s the equivalent of committing suicide, others say they envy him, as they’re sick of being inundated with spam and adware and such. My guess is that he won’t have that much trouble going offline. People spend a lot of time online because it’s there, and it’s very very useful for a lot of things, but I still don’t think that too many people absolutely rely on the internet for being able to exist.
