Jonathan Franzen's laptop

Interesting:

Because Franzen believes you can't write serious fiction on a computer that's connected to the Internet, he not only removed the Dell's wireless card but also permanently blocked its Ethernet port. "What you have to do," he explains, "is you plug in an Ethernet cable with superglue, and then you saw off the little head of it."

Also interesting; Time inserted this text automatically when I copied and pasted the quote from the article: "Read more: http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,2010185,00.html#ixzz2N9T5IApL." I find this both useful and disturbing.
