THOU SHALT UNPLUG

There has been much talk and concern about the rise in Virtual addiction. Earlier today I was reading this article. And I agree to it that some of us (including myself) are too plugged in. Ask yourself, can you survive one day completely cut off from technology? Ok, one day is bearable but imagine one whole week disconnected from the internet; no web browsing, no polling of inbox, no blogging, no watching videos on youtube, no chatting, no facebook, no skimming through e- magazines and headlines; in short absolutely no web browsing. Yikes!

I would kinda enjoy it, because it will give me a chance to do a lot more things which i'm normally kept away from doing cuz of the addiction.

So i think it depends more on ones activities or interests, if this is all you do and want to do, then of course its gonna get really difficult :)
