Do you think you could manage without the staples of modern technology, computers and smartphones (includes laptops, tablets, ebooks, televisions and similar devices)? Without social media or email?
The question occurs to me because it may be my situation in a year. The more I think about it, the more "unplugging" sounds enticing. I've already deleted my social media accounts, and email is a major drag. If I absolutely have to correspond via email, I can always go to the library. But other than that, what do I use computers for? They're a massive time sink of course, with forums and Reddit (now Hubski) occupying more of my waking time than I care to admit. I use my phone as a watch and an alarm clock, but both of those things have pre-2007 alternatives. I use my laptop to write, but I can just as easily write on paper (or I could probably find a typewriter online for cheap).
Would typing on an electric typewriter and calling my friends in 2016 make me a crazy person? Does the unplugged lifestyle tempt you?
