At midnight tonight I will leave the internet. I’m abandoning one of my “top 5″ technological innovations of all time for a little peace and quiet. If I can survive the separation, I’m going to do this for a year. Yeah, I’m serious. I’m not leaving The Verge, and I’m not becoming a hermit, I just won’t use the internet in my personal or work life, and won’t ask anyone to use it for me.
That’s bullshit (Garrett Murray has some great points). If you want to quit something for a year, I have compiled a list of things which are worth quitting:
- Eating meat
- Fast food
- Eating anything with emulsifiers in it
- Hitting your children
- Sex without protection
- Wasting water and energy
