    As our technology encroaches ever deeper into our public and private lives, driving an increasingly frantic lifestyle, more and more people are choosing to live "off the grid" This seems to be taking root all over the world, as many want to slow down their pace, even at the expense of creature comforts they've grown up with. How big will this get? My guess is VERY big. Thoughts?

    My guess is: not very big.

    Most sheeples are happy to be surrounded by "helping" applications as much as possible.

    Now that those seven places supposedly off the grid have been listed on the grid, they're as good as dead.

    Gotta find some place else now.
