It is in a technological society. Isn't it kinda obvious now? Zoom calls, video streaming, internet gaming, other work from home jobs.
No it is not "obvious" at all. I have no real need for any of those things and could easily live without them if I decided to live in an out of the way rural area. I certainly don't see ruining earth-based astronomy as worth it for people to do internet gaming out in the woods. Heck, I have friends who do not use the internet at all.
