The amount of time we spend online is pretty insane compared to just a few years ago and I have previously written about technology addiction. So what would happen if you took a day off from your computer? Shutdown Day is looking to find out. According to the Shutdown Day web site:
"The idea behind the experiment is to find out how many people can go without a computer for one whole day, and what will happen if we all participate!"
Currently, there are 55,500+ people registered to participate in the one day computer blackout. I decided to write this article in advance so that I too could participate in a day off the grid. I hope you can do the same. The video below showcases some different activities you could do with your laptop computer on shutdown day, instead of booting it up.
