The purpose of technology, to me, is to make the world more efficient. Efficiency increases productivity and decreases waste. From a technology perspective, WHY go back to "normal" aka inefficient? Let's just ask for the sake of mother earth and our precious ozone, the very oxygen that keeps us alive, is it better to pollute our air, streams, rivers and kill the trees through de-forestation? What necessities have we been able to live without? What new appreciation have we gained? For the socialist that I am, can we FINALLY admit that internet access, the connection necessary for students to learn online, is a public good?
