Along the same vein, I have been absorbed in reading Nicholas Carr's "The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains". An in depth look at the question: While we enjoy all the internet has to offer, are we sacrificing our ability to read and think deeply? I certainly see changes in my own levels of distraction with spending more time online. What is your experience? I am eager to finish the book and what I have read so far is fascinating...hope you will check it out.

My friend and fellow fiber artist, Sherry Kleinman, has come up with a creative exploration of the technology question. She has begun a series of quilts called "Alone Together", depicting groups of people in various stages of connection/disconnection. Sherry uses technology and hand skills to create these compelling images, becoming an interesting counterpoint.
