The Great Luddite Reaction of 2011
I have decided that for the two weeks that we are in Maine I am going to indulge my inner Luddite.
I have a stack of great books that I am taking along which I will blog about before we leave. I was tempted to set up some automatic posts while I am away, but I know if I do that I am going to be too tempted to look online to see if they posted correctly and to see if anyone has commented. So I am going to go cold turkey. Of course this means that I won't be able to read your blogs for two weeks either. I will certainly miss all of you. But how often does one get to unplug for two weeks?
(Since the automobile, telephone, credit card and iPod all predate the Luddite movement which began in 1811, I will still be using those technologies.)
