I recentlty wrote two pieces on this topic when I was forced to unplug for a while. As we get closer to the People's Climate March I thought it might be a relevant reflection on our relationship to stuff and things. We all need to consumer less.

Life without a phone has allowed me to reflect on everything I used it for: pictures, email, navigation, text, phone, and music. I also used it to check prayer times, search quick facts online, take notes in meetings, and record audio at lectures. Basically, I’ve been filtering my entire life through this one device... origonall published with 7 other things I learned. Read more here.
And other piece with this segment:
I am anonymous. For the first time in a long time, my location is not immediately traceable. I am not immediately reachable. I am literally outside of the matrix.
