Do you spend your down time with hobbies not related to technology?
We all play games. That's why we're here, right? We like our phones and televisions. I'm wondering what hobbies you may have that you could do with minimal technology being mainly involved. Some technology could work, like for model railroading, building things, or working on a car where electricity is needed.
Things like hiking or biking, woodcraft, knitting or crochet, drawing (could use computers, I guess), star gazing, gardening, physical fitness, reading, what have you.
The reason this popped into my head is that I'm a fan of the TV show NCIS. For those don't watch it, it follows a team of Naval Criminal Investigators as they solve crimes within the Navy. This team is led by Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) who is an older guy who dislikes technology. He builds boats in his off time. He enjoys camping and living rustically. I just got to wondering how intrusive technology is today, as I admire this guy
There's also a "want to" factor. I "want to" set up and layout a model railroad. I "want to" work with wood for furniture and nicknacks. I am just currently unable to pursue these hobbies at the moment.
So, what are some of your hobbies you can (or want to) do with limited technology?
Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.
