Yeah, I have friends that disconnect as well and have no phones etc. But they are making a choice, that's quite different than not having a choice at all. Also, given the nature of the work I do, not having Internet connectivity wouldn't be tenable.
Oh for sure. Internet for all! It should eventually be a basic human right (which is actually another reason why I am trying not to pay for Internet/cell phone etc., our communication space should be based on free universal access). And I realize what I am experimenting with is not realistic nor desirable to everyone... just something I am exploring.
