I’m Leaving the Internet for a Year

Paul Miller says goodbye:

At midnight tonight I will leave the internet. I’m abandoning one of my “top 5” technological innovations of all time for a little peace and quiet. If I can survive the separation, I’m going to do this for a year. Yeah, I’m serious. I’m not leaving The Verge, and I’m not becoming a hermit, I just won’t use the internet in my personal or work life, and won’t ask anyone to use it for me.

This is an interesting experiment, and I wish him the best of luck. I can’t do this, but it’s going to be interesting to see what happens. Miller also did a Reddit “AMA” post which has a large number of questions with his answers.
