I'm leaving the internet for a year | The Verge
Am happy that the writer is trying out this experiment of staying offline, but I suspect most of us would not be able to do it.
Not because we're addicted, although this is one factor, but because our work requires us to use the Internet, e.g. to be contactable via email.
I would like to try a lite-version of this experiment though. Deleted my Facebook account once, but had to restart it for work purposes. Perhaps I can start with rationing usage.
