I just sit...and Google. It's terrible, I wish I was a fireman.

Is working with your hands better than working with your head? More and more depressed office workers are answering yes, reversing the decades-long trend away from manual labor.

Columnist and broadcaster Giles Coren recently swapped his PC and keyboard for working on a small farm with vegetables and chickens - and found it "immensely satisfying." In a BBC report he complains that "modern life has been blighted by a series of alienating processes, often carried out on mobile phone, laptop and e-mail. In this way, his chosen career - journalism - has been stripped of its sense of adventure and human contact." He says:

"Even 15 years ago when I started as a reporter, you left the office to do a story. You went to investigate, visited people and used the cuttings library. Now I just sit... and Google. It's terrible, I wish I was a fireman."

Despite his columnist's salary, he is jealous of those ...

Sorry, Rick, but I think you really missed the point of this blog. While some of the phenomena you described are in fact a legitimate concern, that's not what the blog post was about at all. The author wasn't blasting technology in favor of "Real Life." If you follow some of the links from the blog, you will see that one of his side ministries in fact focuses on using technology to the glory of God. The whole point of the blog post was that work -- even ministry work -- doesn't satisfy. Only Jesus satisfies.

This may not be Spiritual Revival, but it is good news and a step in the right direction. Internet, Cell Phones, iPhones, texting, ect. have actually become an addiction for many people; and not just the young.

Many of us have had to deal with people driving while texting, have had to wait till the cashier at the supermarket finished texting to wait on us, and watch lifeguards ingore swimmers so they can engage their electronic god's. In common conversation people turn away from the person talking to them to engage in a Text Conversation. Worker productivity in decreasing, rudeness and addiction abounds.

Thanks for this article. It's good to know that there are other people who are concerned about the trend, and that there are people who want to get back to Real Life.
