  1. Responding to the other comment…
    I don’t think the question was would you WANT to. It was COULD you. Yes, I could. Simple enough.

  2. Are you out of your biking mind? Who would want to do that? I guess I could if I had access to my front and back yards, especially my wrap around porch. I need to be able to sit in my porch swing and decompress some times. Why do you ask? Are you recruiting the next dotcomguy or dotcomgirl?

  3. Jeff, The flip side of this scenario is a story I just read in The New York Observer about a woman who was determined to go for a period of time without using any inventions created AFTER 1985, the year she was born. Fascinating fun story: here’s the link: http://www.observer.com/2009/style/new-york-world-new-york-without-net

  4. Jeff, I could do it. I wouldn’t want to, though. Especially since I know I could.

  5. Jeff, I wouldn’t want to but I could if I had to. I’d miss the physical closeness of people. Being able to touch a friends hand when she tells you about some struggle she is facing, walking along a trail with my hubby holding hands, sitting on a park bench watching my son catch frogs in the creek. The sounds, the smells, these are thins the internet can’t replace.
