The Cult of “Turn Off Your Computer” Must Die


"I realize that I am more than just my online persona. But I am also more than just my in person persona. Who I am online is no less real than who I am in person. It’s just differently mediated. All this is true, provided I choose to share my real self online. Turn Off Your Computer cult members can’t perceive the realness of the online world, not because its realness doesn’t exist, but because they refuse to present their own real selves to the online community."
