CAMPAIGN: Internet of Things


Recently I read a startling statement which pointed to the fact that apparently more people in the world today have cell phones than toilets. It seems that once again I am in the minority, since I do choose to have modern plumbing but not a personal communication device. Anyone who knows me at all is probably aware that I gave up the cell phone in 2005 and haven’t looked back.

After more than a decade of being constantly accessible I became acutely annoyed by the reality that I was voluntarily providing an electronic “leash” to just about anyone in the world who could give it a tug any time they felt like it. I remember the cellular service representative being somewhat confused that I did not want to hold onto my cell number but I made sure to offer my sympathy to “the poor [person] that gets it after me”. It remains one of the most liberating feelings I’ve ever experienced.
