ok, gonna give this a shot.


So just now I was sitting at my desk, doing some design stuff, bringing my attention from time to time to a game of chess that I have going with the computer, and it dawned on me how completely dependent we all are on technology. Even if you hate computers and phones and gadgets, widgets, gizmos, what have you, it still stands that the infrastructure on which the world (that you, incidentally, live in) runs entirely on these technologies. I wondered what would happen if all of a sudden, all the electronics in the world just stopped working and how I, as a person who uses all this stuff day in and day out and depends on it (not to mention am enamored with all the new crap that comes out), would fair.

There's really no other way to find out than doing, so as of today, I will not be using my phone for the entire week. Far be it from stopping all my tech use, but I have papers to write and online reading to do, so cutting all electronics out at this point simply isn't do-able. So for those of you that have it, I'll be reachable at my home number, but good luck with that as 1) I'm never home long enough and 2) I never answer my home phone. And for those of you that don't, I'll be online. I want to see how this'll go.

Hey Jack, you should check out this book by Timothy Ferriss called "The Four Day Work Week" it covers a lot of those ideas about cutting things down and streamlining. http://www.amazon.com/4-Hour-Workweek-Escape-Live-Anywhere/dp/0307353133/ref=pd_bbs_1/102-1482805-5739354?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1183361519&sr=8-1
