Off-line downtime

I unexpectedly lost the Internet Tuesday. A tree service company cut down a tree on an adjoining lot and knocked out our DSL in the process. Collateral damage.

Until 1994 I had no Internet and somehow lived happily. But now if I lose access to the web, I lose access to WordPress and blogs I regularly read, to email, to Amazon and other shopping, to social media, to news, to the ability to stream music and movies, and, in this case, to the Gifford Lecture that is my reading project.

Maybe we have become too dependent. Of course, I could have taken my tablet somewhere with free Wi-Fi. But, instead, I actually worked on some non-web related projects at home.
