Sat. March 27: No Tech Day

A UK charity, Practical Action, is sponsoring No Tech Day. They have this interesting quote:

No Tech Day is a challenge for gadget addicts to go without their favourite tech toys for a day this Saturday, March 27th 2010, to raise awareness of how much we all rely on and use gadgets in our everyday life, and think what life is like for people in the developing world who do not have the same access to technology and energy.

Call me a skeptic, but there are thosethose who choose to go without technology, and do just fine. It is certainly possible to do well without technology: lack of technology does not equal poverty.

However, going without technology can also teach us how dependent we are on tech and show us what we are missing in The Real World.

Will I take part? Not sure yet… Maybe…
