Back On Line
For the last five days I have been without Internet access (blame SBC for not getting my new home set up on time). I am now back on-line and am in the process of catching up with the news (I also have had limited TV access) and the blogosphere.
I should be back and posting soon—although the frequency will still be reduced for at least another week as my family and I unpack and get our new house situated.
Thanks to all my fellow co-bloggers for keeping The Yellow Line up and running with such thoughtfulness.
I’ll be back soon, but I leave with this thought: While off-line, I constantly needed information available only on the Internet—or at least incredibly hard to find without the Internet. Every company I dealt with wanted me to go on-line. Many friends and colleagues tries to contact me on e-mail accounts that I couldn’t check. I felt completely and frustratingly detached from society.
So I wonder, is Internet access now mandatory to fully participate in American life? And, if not, will it soon be that way?
