I sold my iPhone and purchased a cheap Nokia. I needed to sever my link to the omniscient, omnipresent super robot in the clouds. The Internet is everywhere, and nowhere, a huge swirling mass of voices, looking for attention. I was considering this when I embarked on my first phone-less commute.

Personally I find it difficult to deal with the barrage of daily emails which ping with, sometimes, monotonous regularity. And the ability to archive is a skill which I desperately need to develop.

We are not really connected to each other either, experiencing real human interaction and spontaneity. You can send me an email from the other side of the world and I might read it within minutes.
