A week or so ago, there was a question swirling around Twitter and Facebook: Would you give up the internet (forever) for a million dollars?
My answer (with zero hesitation): NO.
No way, no huh, not in a million bazillion years. I love, love, love the internet.
If I gave up the internet, I couldn’t Skype with friends in Cambodia.
If I gave up the internet, I couldn’t release a sweet new long-awaited e-book in October (details forthcoming–on the internet, of course).
If I gave up the internet, I could only apologize to a handful of Democrats instead of a boatload.
If I gave up the internet, Ava couldn’t go to this “really cool school” this fall.
If I gave up the internet, I wouldn’t be able to keep in touch with some amazing folks all over the country (and world). And I wouldn’t be able to pray for/advocate on behalf of amazing ministries in Haiti and Thailand and Kenya and EVERYWHERE.
If I gave up the internet, how would I know about this INCREDIBLE woman and be able to invite her into our home in a couple weeks to share her story with anyone who wants to come?
You know I could go on for days.
I’m sure some of you think you could survive without the internet (and maybe you’re right), but for the rest of you, what’s the one thing you would miss most about the internet if you had to give it up?
