Pulling the PlugPosted: August 20, 2010
A-Z West is now an internet free zone…. Not free internet – but internet free!
Out of synch with the world that wants to be connected all the time everywhere – I have been sorely feeling the need for some limits. Email has become a sport, like a game of tennis, in which I spend the entire day flinging back messages trying to get the in box down to zero (which actually happened once, years ago, when I lived in a different house) – but the faster they go out, the faster they just came back in. To say nothing of my inability to focus on a conversation without excusing myself every ten minutes to check the latest incoming news….
Now I’m only allowed to go on-line at the office (the HDTS HQ). Yesterday I did a test run for this plan and managed to clean out my inbox in two hours – a new world record.
