Steve Cisler, a resident of Silicon Valley and former employee of Apple cuts the 'umbilical cord' and goes offline. He decides to stoop to the level of mere mortals and interact with people who have not yet been baptized into the self-transcendence of cyberspace. However, like a departed saint he does not wish to be unremembered and a friend will publish a regular newsletter from him on his weblog. The religious language that permeates the article is interesting. Whilst it is only half-serious, there is enough truth in it to suggest that a book-length Christian critique of the Internet as a medium might be worthwhile.
