Whether in Toronto or Tokyo, we find our lives increasingly dependent on the digital devices that we own, from smartphones to tablets and the many services that they connect us to. What would you do if you were completely unplugged? Would you pick up the phone and call a friend, instead of writing a note on their “wall” or a 140 character “tweet”? It”s already been pointed out out before; it seems as if the more we integrate into the “network”, the more distant we seem to be from each other. I remember a time when the Internet didn’t exist in the form that we know today, when computers were just tools and not an integral part of our lives, a time when people actually spent time talking to each other just because.
