A Mild Case of Luddism

August 15, 2010 at 11:42 pm (Uncategorized)

A week or so back, I saw a feature on Yahoo(?) about technology that “you own that are obsolete”  – I was relieved that much of the stuff I didn’t own anyway, but then again who has fax machines and beepers outside of the workplace.

Then my friend Joanne sent me this lovely piece from Wondermark about books (OK, she’s mentioned in the articles, but so what…). I do like toys, but I can’t see myself getting an e-book reader anytime soon.

    Image that my tea accidentally was knocked over above a E-book. It sparkled, exhaled a thread of smoke, and died. A paper book would just get a bit wrinkly and still be with me till oxydation do us apart.
