Technology Can Miss the Connection

July 21, 2002

I couldn't agree more with Chris Borden ["Fewer Cell Phones Could Be a Good Thing," Letters, July 14].

My husband and I are among the millions of normal Americans who refuse to own a cell phone to feel connected. We connect by talking to real people face to face by attending many community events and being out in the world.

It is our feeling that many of these electronic conveniences really isolate people from one another. It is possible for one to totally avoid personal contact by communicating only via cell phones, e-mail, voice mail, Internet shopping, etc. Is this really being "connected"?
