Shutting down your computer for one whole day?
AndrewB posted a link on IRC to a Shutdown Day project. The site features a counter to when is this day supposed to begin, and it is now counting less than 12 hours.
It's an experiment to see how many people can go for one day, 24 hours, without a computer, how addicted we are to computers and what would happen if enough people really shut down.
There is a bit of a controversy about the project though, and even an article on engadget suggesting to boycott shutdown day and instead of shutting down use computers twice as much than normal.
Well that'd be impossible for me, personally, I think I probably can't use a computer more than I already am. lol
Anyway, what do you think of the idea? Will you shut down? Do you think it's good to shut down or do you think it's pointless and that it is completely normal to rely so much on computers in this technology age. There are some arguments on that in comments to this blog entry...
I didn't say no nor yes yet, but to be perfectly honest, I doubt I'll shut down. I mean, whole 24 hours? Gosh.. how..
