Tweets from Maine and Texas

Thoreau, wearing earbuds.
     "We are in great haste to construct a magnetic telegraph from Maine to Texas; but Maine and Texas, it may be, have nothing important to communicate."
     - Henry David Thoreau in 1854 (!), questioning our assumptions that technological progress is inherently good for culture. 
     When will we have heard enough of Maine and Texas?
