The old way to be cool was to be plugged in and always-on. Digital reputation on point. More followers than people you follow. Respond to messages in seconds.
The new cool? Total isolation, solitary confinement style.
And it can be yours for just over $2000 US. Distraction-free academic interaction: the students, the text, and nothing else.
Kind of rustic, don’t you think?
Or maybe you can think of a better word?
