Do you live in the cloud or in the dust?
Apparently there are people out there (probably me included) who spend their days working on their laptops, checking their phones, scratching their tablets, working online, basically connecting data wherever they are. If you check your emails while waiting for the bus, go to bed with your laptop, listen to podcast on your bike, and look on your smart watch while with your friends - you are totally living in the cloud. Your reality is the big data bubble connecting us all with everything else.
And than there are other people (one of my sisters is one of this rare species) who life a live in the dust. These people wake up when the sun wakes them up, they collect the eggs from their hens, they know what season it is, they talk to their neighbors, they cook their dinner and read books.
The first category of people romanticizes the life of the others. But there is indeed something intriguing about sleeping without electronics.
What is your lifestyle? How do you want to live? When is the cloud supporting your personal growth, when is it sucking your time? Can we use the cloud to be politically active instead of reactive like consumers?
