A BLOGGER GOES OFF THE GRID

Full Cort Press, the high school blogger whose clear-eyed post about Facebook impressed me last week, just took it up notch. Appalled by the expulsion of a student who refused to surrender his phone after being caught texting in class, FCP made a token nod to civil liberties (which is where the rest of us freedom lovers would have planted our flags), then changed tack and wondered at the severity of an addiction that prompts a student to place his entire education in jeopardy. Recognizing that her generation is particularly afflicted, FCP has put herself on a full digital detox—liberating herself from the machines that had become her master. (And yeah, she does recognize the irony of announcing this in a blog post.) I’ll keep you apprised of her progress.
