Nature and Technology - The Outrun by Amy Liptrot

I've been reading and thinking about Nature and Technology for years, and one piece of writing that has really stood out and inspired me is Chapter 19: Online in The Outrun by Amy Liptrot. Here, I'm going to try to explain why I find it so useful.

The Pow of Keldie looks like a potential spot to swim at low tide. Mad Geo is dark and intense. For me, these places - 'The Sneck', 'Errival' - exist both digitally and underfoot.

We spend too much time online and real life is just another window. What's the point in going out to look at wildlife when I can watch nature documentaries on YouTube, in bed with an electric blanket?
