By Jim, Feed Name: WayUpNorth's Blog

Post Title: Can You Go One Day Without the Internet?
By Brandy_Erdmann, Feed Name: On Creativity & Multicultural Communication
Preview: Project Reconnect is calling for a worldwide internet blackout on September 2, 2012 as a means of being "original for a day."
