Luddite Gets Mobile Phone

 

Written by:

I needed a cheap digital camera and a couple of Apps that can potentially improve my productivity; so I punctured my luddite lifestyle and bought myself a pre-paid (no contracts) smartphone.

 

Goal #1

Release only what is absolute necessary about me.

Due to identity theft and privacy concerns!

 

Goal#2

Not get involved!

I asked a millennial to set the phone up for me and I was astonished to see all the options available. When selecting option A instead of B you are actually investing into the gizmo, making it your own, something that will reflect who you are and what you stand for.

It is a tool, not a friend, will not tell my story, will not define who I am.  I’m not playing the game. I’m NOT available 24/7.

Neutrality comes with the price of being disconnected. Society is composed of like-minded people; teal lovers search for bluish-green connections, and the burnt sienna worshippers choose to navigate a path that’s deep reddish brown. Embracing the color wheel will yield richer exposure and isolation.
There is no glory in neutrality.
