Day 15: What feels lonelier?
Out-of-town friends stopped by last night on their way to St. Louis. While discussing my no-car project, someone said I should go without the Internet after I’m finished.
No way. That’s where I talk to old friends, get my news and check the weather. Beside, it seems to me the damaging environmental and social effects of cars hardly compares with computers. Or does it?
Hands down, one said, the Internet would go before her car. She said she’d feel isolated without her car.
What’s funny is I felt isolated with one. It seems to me they’re designed that way.
