March 24 is Shutdown Day

Can you imagine not turning on your computer at all for one whole day?

Actually, I can imagine. Many people I know can quite happily go for days without using a computer.

They’re weird, of course :)

I find the idea of Shutdown Day pretty compelling – a grand experiment to find out how many people can go without a computer for one whole day, and what will happen if lots of people participate.

According to the FAQ on the website, the purpose is to get people to think about how their lives have changed with the increasing use of the home computer, how society is changing and whether or not any good things are being lost because of this.

Shutdown Day is tomorrow, Saturday March 24.

I’d intended to participate fully – not turn on my computer nor my mobile phone nor any other gadget during the whole of Saturday.

Well I can’t do that. Weekend work beckons. So instead, this blog will shutdown all day tomorrow.

How about you? Can you shutdown all day?
