Two Weeks With No Internet

The most recent poll here showed that the internet is by far our favourite thing to do nowadays.


Can't say I'm surprised. It's so clearly better than talking to people, isn't it? I mean... what if you're talking to someone, and you start to find them dull? You can't minimise their window. And what's the likelihood they can give you the very latest news, and sport? Not high.

Personally, if I'm without internet access for longer than about 10 minutes at a time, I begin to feel anxious and unwell.

So I wonder how I'll fare for the next two weeks.

Scamp is going on holiday.


See you when I get back.

They must have either Wifi, 3G or EDGE even at the North Pole. Where you are going?

The internet is like a huge public library/cultural observation tank. It's part of my job to surf the net in between assignments.

It seemed a bit rude that nobody would wish you a happy holiday.

Happy holiday Scamp.

Have fun recovering your offline soul! I'm about to try 5 days myself.

The important thing to remember is that, even with how predictable the results to that poll are, digital marketing must be rubbished at every stage.

I mean, look at that poll! Why oh why would you want to spend money on digital marketing?!? Madness!

Not really, Publicis' output has really dwindled over the last three years...

Thanks for the good wishes, all. Which didn't go up earlier because I wasn't looking at the net/e-mail, to put them up. The hotel did have internet but I managed to resist it. Back now, and fully addicted again...

Scamp is in Mexico of course.

How dare you simply up and disappear like that! No warning, no photo competition, no nothing. My life has been a meaningless void for the last 2 weeks. The next post better be good.

Where have you been? Not Mexico I hope!

5.11. I couldn't agree more. This might be some sort of trivial little hobby to you Mr S. but to some of us it's far, far more than that, giving colour and the illusion of something that almost smells like purpose to our shoddy existences.
