We’re plugged in and ambiguous about it!

We had internet installed at Mount Totumas Cloud Forest today. This is certainly important for logistics and communication especially for coordinating the arrival and departure of guests and contacting suppliers etc.  So this is a good thing.  To photograph a Resplendent Quetzal in the morning and share these images the same day with friends of Mount Totumas all around the world is also something to marvel out. At the same time however we have to acknowledge that something has been compromised with the arrival of the internet. A digital tentacle from the world has penetrated the isolated unplugged wilderness here and this tether feels invasive.
