fascinating, thoughtprovoking article by howard rheingold in wired (from 1999, but i didn't see it before) about the amish and their selective use of technology -- "does it bring us together, or draw us apart".

It was interesting, and surprisingly close to some of my thoughts about technology, living with a technophilic early adopter.

I've been fascinated with how the Amish treat technology since I finally learned what was behind it a few years ago. Very interesting ideas.
