It's not a matter of escaping from the connectivity of modern life. It's about controlling it. I'm miles away from home here, in a sparsely populated part of the world. The phone isn't ringing. No texts are coming in. But I can power up my laptop, and post this. Mobile broadband is an expensive way of moving ones and zeroes around, but hey! These are the best of times! I'd post a picture, but the two bits of technology I didn't bring are a battery charger and connecting lead for my camera.
Here's one from the internet instead.
