How many times have you wondered if its possible to escape the rat race of the City and find an island of your dreams. . . maybe with no people. . . just dolphins, palm trees, beautiful sunsets, white sandy beaches, clear turquoise water, etc. . . well anyone who saw the Matrix or who even imagined a tuna fish sandwich before making it, knows that anything you can dream can become real. Especially when all that we call real is just a dream. . .A little boy in his room alone is God. . . until his Mom knocks on the door. . . the challenge is to find an island where it is possible to Grok- to dream- in complete peace without distraction. Then we can grok on an infinite level. This is tough- but with the help of digital tools it is possible. To date there have been a limited number of successful industrial hermits, but with technology increasing at a breakneck speed, the potential for the wired hermit is infinite. We need nothing but an island, a few coconuts and a laptop.
Anyone can be a hermit, but the wired hermit must be able to get online at all times. He is a new evolution of hermit- one who escapes but communicates digitally from a safe distance.
With a whole new generation of web developers, dot com millionaires, and other internet and creative digital professionals, location has suddenly become completely irrelevant. We have a choice to live anywhere on the planet with nothing else but food, water, and a phone line. So wherever we live we are making a statement- "I can be anywhere else on the planet right now, living as easily and making the same income, but I choose to be right here." Wherever we live we are endorsing as the best place in the world. But I choose to endorse no one. So I live on an island. I suspect more will follow. This site should help.
