Man Abandons Internet For One Year – Could You Do It? [VIDEO/POLL]

Man leaves the Internet for one year
ABC

Technology writer Paul Miller hasn’t been on the Internet since May 1st, 2012. He hasn’t sent an email, checked Facebook, or even Googled something in nearly three months – and he plans to stay off the grid for an entire year.

Could you do it?

Miller sees the Internet as a giant distraction.

“Since 2005 I have had a job that required me to be on the Internet for at least 12 hours a day. And whatever I would do after work would be on the Internet too,” he said.

“But I found it very distracting and I wanted to spend time studying and writing uninterrupted. I wanted to read books that I could have read at any time, but instead I was reading Reddit. I wanted to write things I wanted to write for a long time, but instead I was tweeting.”

Could you do it? Remember, this means no email, text messages, looking up something on Google, or social media.
