Techno-rant: Forget Second Life - give me some reality!
Posted on 27 February by John Stokdyk
As technology editor for a collection of websites, I work in an IT-intensive environment. The home-office I inhabit has three computers hooked into the net via a router. But I began to resent the intrusion of tech into my life when a relaxed stroll down to the train station turned into a mad rush thanks to the Batman-like electronic utility pack I needed to collect and prepare. My jaunt to suburban Surrey required: wireless-equipped laptop, 64Mb USB memory stick, Nokkia mobile phone and a 1Gb iPod Shuffle for entertainment along the way.
