A few months ago, I blogged about Steven Wilson, the frontman for Porcupine Tree—one of my favorite groups. Wilson loves playing with different tools to create different soundscapes, yet hates the iPod. He actually destroys them for the whole world to see.
At the same time, though, he uses interesting sites like Soundcloud to get his music to the masses beyond traditional CDs. Translation: some technology is good but other technology is bad.
Drawing the Line
While I’m nowhere near as creative as Wilson (dare to dream, right?), I have the fundamental same issue with technology. One one hand, I love my little gadgets. I dig checking out new sites. Yet, I’m a relic when it comes to books. I don’t want a Kindle or an iPad–at least yet. I like being able to be reached, yet I can’t imagine using Foursquare to let the world (or at least my “friends”) know that I’ve checked in to a coffee shop.
Oddly enough, “Drawing the Line” is an amazing song from Porcupine Tree.
What say you? Where do you draw the line?
