I haven't read anything about this yet. While checking my feeds I saw Steve's post on this.
A whole day without a PC ... it's a saterday, so that should help ... I do wonder how many people can/do/will ... I'm in ...
The clock is ticking towards Shutdown Day and if I can turn off my computer for a day I’m sure you can :)
Shutdown Day is a Global Internet Experiment whose purpose is to get people to think about how their lives have changed with the increasing use of the home computer, and whether or not any good things are being lost because of this.
The idea of Shutdown Day project is simple - just shutdown your computer for one whole day of the year and involve yourself in some other activities: outdoors, nature, sports, fun stuff with friends and family - whatever, just to remind yourself that there still exists a world outside your monitor screen.
