However, Nixon sees the easy access as a weak point as it distracts us from our other daily activities. As an example he describes his experience at an artists' colony during the summer where to use the internet he had to hike half a mile to the main residence to plug in his lap top, allowing him to check his e-mail only about once every three days.
