Getting UNhooked from all that is 'online' is refreshing indeed
It really is Sgt. And I'm saying that as someone who loves the internet and how it has changed our lifestyles for the better as long as we keep our focus on its long-term benefits rather than short term trends.
Yet I look forward each day to going out in public places and hoping to bump into an old man sitting on a park bench with a serene expression to ask him -- what was it all about?!
Social media places such as WebmasterWorld are invaluable for interacting with same-industry folks. But even still I know there are times when debates become personal because of misunderstanding due to an absence of tone of expression or body gestures. Those are subtleties that cannot be conveyed via written word. I save all my deep conversations for in-person meetups, for whatever topic, in case I have to defend myself with a smile.
