Article: Why I don’t own a mobile phone (Writing about writing)

Stumbled across this blog post about not owning a mobile phone. Must say it’s really an interesting read. It’s actually from the owner of Silverfish Books. I hope this clarifies the question once and for all, though it probably will not. I’m the one without the mobile phone, but my friends, for some reason, are the ones who feel the pain.

Constructed as intricate assemblages of piping, wood, and wing-like sails, Jansen’s creations are constantly being improved and have become excellently (…) Read more
