Digital Detox Week

True Digital Detox is a different thing, and rare to achieve. It's being away for a week or more in a remote place: a Sierra Nevada backpacking trip, a dive boat on the Barrier Reef, a remote village with no Internet in a third-world country. It's always a great feeling to be disconnected from the news. The little stuff doesn't matter, and you can catch up on the big stuff the next time you get to a news stand to buy the Economist.
