Baratunde Thurston unplugged from his digital life for 25 days and is sharing his experience. “The greatest gift I gave myself was a restored appreciation for disengagement, silence, and emptiness. I don’t need to fill every time slot with an appointment, and I don’t need to fill every mental opening with stimulus…”

To help you embark on your own digital detox, we’re putting together a guide to unplugging. This will be something you can print out and take with you. To do this, we’re soliciting pieces of advice from our readers on the best ways to unplug. Got some thoughts? Submit them here, or tweet them at @FastCompany with the hashtag #unplug

A good idea and all, but no thanks.

I would never have bet my friends without digital technology, let alone live without internet for a week.

But good for you Mr. Baratunde Thurston.

My name is Blaze-Kitty, and I am otaku with a blog. There are many like me, but I still exist.

My interests include:
Anime (more in the tag)
Don't Starve
Red vs Blue
Star Trek
Fan Fiction

This is mainly a blog for me to keep stuff that I enjoy from all across tumblr.
(I will tag things in time, please be patient)

You know what? I'll reblog everything and not give a damn. Feel free to search for stuff.
