Computer Woes

Books can be burned. Newspapers can be censored. The internet, however, remains free, so far. A trillion tiny portals reach into every corner of our small world to connect minds, share secrets, spread light.

This is what I’m thinking tonight, as I curl on my couch. How lucky I am to have unlimited data and a phone.

What are you thinking about?
