If aliens landed on Earth they would assume that humans worship glowing screens.
|Facebook as Religion|
Over the holidays I saw a man walking through a mall in Boston, lovingly cradling his iPad, looking at the screen with reverence and love, oblivious to reality taking place around him.
I find this approach living troubling and distressing. It's akin to reality TV - sitting and watching other people live their lives rather than having a life yourself.
I know it is ironic to announce this on the web, but I have decided to spend less time in cyberspace.
I am looking forward to writing fewer blog posts and more letters, spending fewer lunch breaks in front of a screen and more outside, and embracing the here and now of physical reality rather than an untouchable cyber one.
