national unplug dayCan you live without a smartphone or tablet? If your answer is in the affirmative, then welcome aboard – a Jewish organization that is simply known as Reboot is working on their third iteration of the National Day of Unplugging. This particular day (it is not a holiday, so don’t go around whopping as though you’ve scored) will begin from Friday evening, and goes all the way to sundown Saturday. During this 24 hours or so, it is touted to be the perfect time to disconnect from the web, as well as hook up in real life with your family and friends. The cause basically says, “Turn off your cell phone. Stop the constant e-mailing, texting, Tweeting and Facebooking to take time to notice the world around you.” To date, over 1,330 people have pledged to make the effort to remain unplugged. Do you think you should ‘fast’ from consumer electronics once in a while, and start to learn how to re-connect with actual humans in real life?
