Digital Detox Week: Can you do it?

April 19, 2009
By

Canadian magazine for “mental environment”  Adbusters once again came up with something unthinkable. They announced next week a digital detox week challenging everyone to unplug from their electronic devices. Yes, that includes disconnecting from Facebook, and Twitter and Myspace….

“Say good-bye to Twitter and Facebook. Turn off your TV, iPhone and Xbox,” they say. “Reconnect with the natural world and the people around you. You’ll be amazed at how the magic creeps back into your life.”
