Jody just shared this with me…
Shut down day – March 24, 2007 – http://www.shutdownday.org/
“It is obvious that people would find life extremely difficult without computers, maybe even impossible. If they disappeared for just one day, would we be able to cope?
Be a part of one of the biggest global experiments ever to take place on the internet. The idea behind the experiment is to find out how many people can go without a computer for one whole day, and what will happen if we all participate!
Shutdown your computer on this day and find out! Can you survive for 24 hours without your computer?”
What an interesting (and scary, at least to me) experiment. Anyone going to do it? Jody and I will probably give it a go. It’s a great way to insure we spend a full day of family togetherness, and that’s gotta be good, right? Though going without my computer for a whole day may very well kill me. We’ll see what happens! *Gulp!* Guess I’ll report back on Sunday to tell ya how we did.
Edited at 3:30 p.m. to add: I’m having serious 2nd thoughts already. Not sure it’s going to happen.
