Can we or do we want to live without technology?

I was speaking with my son who just returned from Hawaii. If we were willing to go for a subsistence lifestyle, probably any one of us could live there, or somewhere else, and yet, as often as many of us say we want to, we don't. Ah, now, Tiger paws the computer screen. Even he is interested in technology and the cursor moving across the screen.

Jeff mentioned this article by Kevin Kelly. It is long and well-worth reading as he explores this subject of technology and what the world would be like without it. I think it allows each of us to explore our dreams and where they lead. I have lived in the land of wood smoke, and brought my scarf home with me, so I would have instant access to memory through scent, and yet, I live here and not in the mountains of Nepal or Tibet.
