Tell us: are you embracing analogue in everyday life?
Guardian community team, The Guardian, 2024/01/17


This short Guardian item says "We'd like to hear about any small, low-tech swaps people may be making in their daily lives." Obviously they mean digital versus non-digital. For example, "whether it's using an alarm clock instead of your phone or ditching the Google calendar for a physical diary." And it made me think, it's funny how we don't ask the same question about replacing mechanical with non-mechanical. Walking instead of driving, for example. Remembering dates and directions instead of using notepads or calendars (which must be manufactured), for example. We can't really even imagine a non-mechanical world, yet it really is quite recent. Why is it that we can't contemplate not being able to imagine a non-digital world? Anyhow - don't bother with the Guardian item. I just wanted to put the thought out there.
