Off the grid

http://kaneconsulting.biz/blog/2011/five-lessons-i-learned-from-my-week-off-of-the-grid

What does this blog post about being “off the grid” teach us about being “on the grid?” Are the virtual relationships now worth more (or as much) as our real relationships? Putnam’s “Bowling Alone” always makes me wonder where we are at today? In the 40’s, 50’s, we came together, in the 60’s 70’s and 80’s we went our own way. Social media is bringing us back together, but in a different way. But, is it bringing us back together? A virtual community. I don’t need to worry about how long you’re going to stay, or if i’ll need to tell you to leave, or whether you’ll have too much to drink. All I need to do is log off. And miss you when I can’t log on
