I am avoiding the internet, I still get on Wikipedia.org to learn, but generally, I am avoiding the internet I do not want to become a machine.
We, or I will never get bored or tired of your photos, interviews with fellow travelers, or your points of interest that you chose to share with us. Keep up the good work.
I never get tired of your photo's because I am old and my husband is in not really great health we travel very seldom anymore AND what could not be great about seeing places you are that we would love to visit. We see the travel station on TV and we say oh look, Hobo Andy has been there. We love the really unusual crazy pictures you catch by pure chance too and the children are so precious. Life has gone way to fast for us and these pictures are better than a movie. The toliet pictures have brought us great laughs that we have printed and shown our friends. Never realized there were so many ways of going to the potty, taking a bath or washing your clothes or whatever is your theme of the day because you seem to have a different one every day. Dont' Quit
WEIRD but YOU is my first thought in regards to your daily photo choices and content which is meant as a compliment. You are right about the slow transition or conversion of human beings into MACHINES there are many obvious symptoms which remind me of the plots and characters in the two classic books, "Animal Farm" and "1984" . What I can't seem to identify is the source of this conversion to machine like behavior it seems SO COMPLICATED. I took a 3 year break from 2004 to 2007 from spending too much time in front of a TV or computer screen and feeling the NEED again. You have 100 times more work ethic then I do with your daily contributions and while you entertain and provide insight and inspiration to most of your readers I noticed you still get negative , poisonous replies from trolls. I wouldn't let it effect your mood though, as YOU KNOW, you are at the TOP of the bloggers world travelers' game and it's always been LONELY at the TOP.
I am not changing anything, I just want to let readers know that I feel guilty when I send photos you can find by the 1000's on the Internet. I am focusing on using photos to help tell a story more, and have more or less stopped just sending my good photos for some reasons.
I propose question and hope to find answers.
On the other site, we are going to start publishing all the photos I take so readers can go comment they wish, but this will be just a related link, and easy to avoid.
The first thing which came to mind I couldn't remember the word. The machine culture you are describing is like "The Borg" ( Star Trek ) defined at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borg_(Star_Trek)
