Off the Grid

I am in the Portland Airport, and this is my final blog post before heading off for the next 7 days. I will be spending the next week (July 28 – Aug 3) offline in rural Ohio visiting my family. This is the land of dial-up Internet, no television, and newspapers as the only link to the outside world. It is too remote for DSL or Cable, and the closest high-speed access is the Starbucks at a truck stop about 20 miles away.

I'll be spending the week on low-tech pursuits like hanging with my family, playing with my nephew who turns 8 on July 30, playing Scrabble, and drinking wine with my Mom.

I will have my CrackBerry ... just in case :-)

Have fun being disconnected - it's good for you once in a while! :-)

Oh, and thanks again for having me in the Art of Community discussion. I had a total blast, and learned a ton. I felt like I was in a room full of geniuses, and I was just drinking it all up. :-)

Have a good, safe trip!
