Digital Detox Week

Thanks to NL for keeping the lights on with Liberal Week while I was unplugged.

Digital Detox was an interesting experiment. I couldn't get away entirely from news, computers, and TV, as I work in an information-intensive industry. At home after work, though, it was nice.

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.
