Are you a slave to your cable modem? Would you die without your DSL line? What would life be life without the Internet? At least one geek is giving it (almost) all up. An interesting read which definitely leads to the question of whether broadband’s vast resources have enslaved us even more than the wait times of 56k ever did.
Personally, even though I understand the feelings of “bandwidth guilt,” I feel that the answer is moderation, not abstinence. Especially when you you’re still sapping your friends’ connections anyway.
