Theyre clicking on things and staring at screens."
  6. 6. Connecting to technology is….a physical modification of selfto extend our physical selves, go faster, hit thingsharder, and theres been a limit on that. nownot an extension of the physical self, but anextension of the mental selflook at the inside of your computer• if you print it out, it looks like a thousand pounds of material that youre carrying around all the time.• if you lose that information, it means that you suddenly have this loss in your mind, that you suddenly feel like somethings missing, except you arent able to see it.
