Don’t Read This

WORDguy sez: Today is National UnPlug Day. Don't click here....


We all need time off. Like serious time off. Time when we feel like were able to truly rejuvenate without the little panicked voice chirping away in the back of our heads fretting about the backlog of things we are going to have to deal with when we come in. 

“Unfortunately, email is the one app that we feel guilty about turning off. Why? Cuz the interface is designed to put you on a hamster wheel, rarely ever succeeding at letting you reach empty. You feel accomplished when you get to inbox zero. And then you sleep and its all back to haunt you. For this reason, I recommend taking an email sabbatical.”

—Danah Boyd, senior Microsoft guy, How to Take an Email Sabbatical,” 2011
