Paul Miller is leaving the internet for a year

By separating myself from the constant connectivity, I can see which aspects are truly valuable, which are distractions for me, and which parts are corrupting my very soul. What I worry is that I’m so “adept” at the internet that I’ve found ways to fill every crevice of my life with it, and I’m pretty sure the internet has invaded some places where it doesn’t belong.

I wonder what would happen if he tried to do the same thing with travel infrastructure. If Paul said "I won't drive, fly or take a taxi this entire year". He would be a hermit, stuck in the island that is his apartment. This is, more or less, what's going to happen to him when he "quits" the internet. Technology moves us forward whether it's roads or fiber optics.
