Complete a written reaction in a total of at least 10 lines: 

·        What are the similarities between the Walden experiment and La Ferle’s article?

·        Do you feel that you have somehow “paid a price” because of all the technology you use? 

·        Are you too dependent on technology and is it something you have ever tried to address?

·        Could/Would you perform a “Walden”-type experiment of your own?  Not necessarily going to a cabin, but discarding your own technology for a bit?

·       React to the article as much as you can.  Does she have a point or is it not even worth considering?
