"Cyber Monday" is the new Black Friday? Really? Hahaha, I feel so up on the times now! Apparently today is the day to go buy all those gadgets you just couldn't wait to get your...um...fingertips on while your in-laws were over. Online shopping is an interesting phenomenon, probably one that takes us away from the environment, although in many respects stores are just as artificial as the online world. At least in stores there is the potential for physical contact with real humans and other animals (albiet angry contact, if it's Black Friday); online, there is none of that. But it could be argued that online we have the potential to make more of a difference than in person through donations, etc.
