From sunset tomorrow (Friday) is it the (US) National Day of Unplugging. Why am I highlighting this, given that I’m a so-called ‘Digital Native’ who endorses all things tech for a living? Surely I’d want you to be online as much as possible?
Following the last post on digital diets, I’m coming round to the idea that it’s important to disconnect with the virtual world every once in a while and reconnect with the other world (yes, really – it exists!) For me anyway, it helps me to think of ideas, observe things without distraction and reconnect with people face-to-face. If anything, it inspires more blogs and campaign tactics.
So I’m going to give it a go – 6pm Friday to 6pm Saturday completely unplugged. No phone or computer. See you on the other side!
