    Interesting piece. Love a bit of pop sociology…thanks.

    Sadly ‘electronic connectedness’ is an indispensable part of life, it goes a bit like this –

    “Time to think” = using wikipedia and the vast resources of the www, why not set out those thoughts on a blog…

    “Time to work” = whose job doesn’t require email or internet use these days!?

    “Time to rest” = catching up with the newspapers online, watching youtube or iview, listening to music downloaded from itunes, ‘facebooking’

    “Time to focus on a particular relationship” = via text or email, who actually talks!?

    “We all need times when the phone is turned off, the email is shut down, and we’re logged off of facebook.”

    But…but… what else are we supposed to do?

    “Perhaps we could use some of those times to reflect on the fact that, for many of us,1 not one single form of communication we’re attached to was commonly available 20 years ago.”

    Yup. So glad I was born in Generation Y. =P

    Your dead right Jason.

    For me there is nothing better than spending time completely out of reach, and away from all the trappings of modern life like mobile phones, the internet, TV, radio, etc.
    Last year, our family spent three blissful days hunting and fishing in a remote location while on holiday. It was strange, even a bit scary at first but after a while you get used to it.

    Since my work involves me being on call at times, I yearn for those times where absolutely no one can contact me.
