Making Memories More Annoying For A Year
Somehow, Garrett Murray managed to write up the same thoughts I had been discussing with my girlfriend about “Paul Miller Leaving The Internet”.
Read his post. I agree with every point. Particularly this one:
The reality is, the internet is one of the best tools for being alive.
Which echoes what I wrote in my interview with Matt Alexander:
Personally, I think we should embrace the fact that technology and “real life” are so deeply intertwined now. It’s too late to start pulling the single strings of this complex fabric now. I believe we can be free from the burden of technology only if we realize we don’t “have to” be free from it: we should let technology and real life be independent and help each other at the same time. That’s what I call progress.
With self control, the Internet becomes the modern mankind’s most powerful tool: it creates memories.
