Can you cope without your computer for one day?
That’s the question Shutdownday.org is asking. They are encouraging everyone to switch off for 24 hours, on the 24th March 2007, and so far 13% are already admitting they cannot go without their computer on Saturday.
I have yet to tick the red or grey box – I’d like to spend the day away from the computer, but as it’s my bread and butter, we’ll just have to see!
Going online daily to read the news, check the weather, catch up with people and to blog has been part of my life for the best of 13 or 14 years now, and I could probably count the number of days I haven’t used a computer in all those years on a few hands. There’s no denying it, it’s an integral part of my life.
So more power to you if you can take part in Saturday’s Shutdown Day, but in my case, a no-technology day needs to be planned ahead to get work and personal projects out of the way first.
