International Shutdown Day 2007

26 Feb 2007

On March 24th it’s international Shutdown Day. It’s not related to the Live Earth event, but it’s also an initiative with a ‘community’ background. Basically it’s to see what would happen if as many people as possible would turn off their computers for just one day. The idea behind the experiment is to find out how many people can go without a computer for one whole day, and what will happen if we all participate.

Here’s a funny clip to support this project, which highlights alternative uses for laptops. Do not try this with your corporate equipment.

    The video is a masterpiece. Genuis idea to incorporate the laptop as a hockey puck, basketball, etc. All of us at one point have wanted to kick our laptop.
    The challenge of going one day without going on line is brilliant. I have sent this challenge out to my e-mail list.
    Good luck
    Love to see the result. I for one accept the challenge.
