Shutdown Day – Can You Do It?

Can you do it? Can you go a day without your computer? A whole day? 24 hours – no computer access. Any computer. If you have a smartphone – turn it off. Experimenters Denis Bystrov and Michael Taylor want to know. The 24-hour period in question is March 24, which happens to fall on a Saturday. Maybe I’ll try it.

Be a part of one of the biggest global experiments ever to take place on the internet. The idea behind the experiment is to find out how many people can go without a computer for one whole day, and what will happen if we all participate!

Kind of like “The Great American Smoke Out” or “Turn Your TV Off for a Day.” Sadly – that would be not so good for traffic here at schad.net. Maybe this isn’t such a good idea…. After the jump – a cool video of other uses for a laptop!
