Iphones, ipads, ipods & Thoreau
Dr. Larry Skogen
Facilitator: Janelle Masters
In the mid-nineteenth century, Thoreau “went to the woods” because he wanted to “live deliberately” and “suck out all the marrow of life.” He said he did it because he didn’t want to come to the end of his life to discover that he had “not lived.” Is Thoreau’s experiment replicable in the twenty-first century where omnipresent iConnectors keep us plugged in to a global network of communications and information? And is there anything we can learn from this experiment that matters in this century?
