Day of Unplugging 2014

National Day of Unplugging 2014
Take the Pledge on 3/7-8!

Sign up and take the pledge – who’s with me on this?   Before you say “no” – just ask yourself: What will you unplug for?

Do you have multiple cell phones? Take your iPad to the beach on vacation? Ever find it hard to get through a conversation without posting an update to Facebook? Is your computer always on?

We increasingly miss out on the important moments of our lives as we pass the hours with our noses buried in our iPhones and BlackBerry’s, chronicling our every move through Facebook and Twitter and shielding ourselves from the outside world with the bubble of “silence” that our earphones create.

If you recognize that in yourself – or your friends, families or colleagues— join the National Day of Unplugging, sign the Unplug pledge and start living a different life: connect with the people in your street, neighborhood and city, have an uninterrupted meal or read a book to your child.

If you’re in SFO, LAX, NYC, Austin, or Chicago – check out the Events page – there are some pretty cool happenings going on… all in the spirit of making a commitment to unplug on a regular basis.  Here’s an interesting post on the subject by filmmaker Tiffany Shlain, founder of the Webby awards.

Lastly – no, you don’t have to be Jewish to appreciate the idea of unplugging on a regular basis:
