‘Turn off your media day’

November 25, 2010

 

I was reading “the Sell Blog” On The Australian’s website earlier about how the author was  trying to turn off his TV for a few nights when he got home – ie not watch TV but spend more time doing things or enjoying the time at home – enjoying life as he or she said.

For people like me though, the TV’s not the only problem. In a time of smartphones, multiple computers ( i have two in the house), iPads and so on – it’s increasingly difficult not to have some kind of screen actively feeding information at us.

And if you think it’s hard for the everyday joe like you and I to turn off all of these devices at once (the hair on the back of my neck just stood up), imagine what it will be like for your kids in 15 years time if they try the same – having grown up using all this technology since before they could even talk properly, tearing them away from their media interfaces will be harder than asking them to give you their candy.

But I like the idea of being able to walk away from all of our personal tech gadgets – maybe we should have an annual ‘no tech’ day or similar and celebrate it nation-wide.

Newspaper sales might go through the roof if that happens.
