Can you last 24 hours without using a computer?
Michele Mandel ("A Day without the Net"), has interviewed Montreal computer programmer Denis Bystrov, who along with friend Michael Taylor has issued a world challenge - Can you shut off your computer for 24 hours?. The big day is aptly scheduled for Saturday, March 24.
There are some awesome You Tube videos available on the main site. My fav is "Alternative uses for your laptop". It is a must-see! (And turn up your speakers).
As well as getting a much-needed break from internet addiction, I see a side benefit to this - It is just possible that the energy saved from computers being shut off all over the world may have enough global impact in the reduction of our collective carbon footprint, that we can finally tell David Suzuki and Al Gore to shut the h*ll up!!!
