Bulldog Backs Internet Free Day

Posted: 26th Jan, 2006 By: MarkJ
Strangely UK ISP Bulldog has put its name behind this Sunday's "International Internet-Free Day", which is an idea developed by the Global Ideas Bank. It aims to encourage people to stay offline for the day and enjoy other things:

Why an Internet-Free Day?

- Because it's all too easy to miss out on face-to-face interaction with your family, friends and neighbours.
- Because the net can be addictive, and a day of cold turkey won't hurt.
- Because blogging doesn't provide your daily vitamins and minerals.
- Because you've got RSI coming on in your mouse arm.
- Because we all need time to reflect.
- Because the real world is a wonderful place.
- Because if the mere idea of it enrages you, you definitely need it

We're not alone in our opinion here. There are companies who have e-mail free Fridays, there are internet addiction courses and camps, and there are studies into the psychological effects of excessive internet use. And we're only suggesting one day off from the internet (including e-mail)…and it's a Sunday.

Obviously, there is a certain irony to a web-based project promoting an internet-free day, but this is not an anti-internet campaign. The web has brought numerous benefits to hundreds of thousand of people, be it through easier communication, networks of support, consumer choice, access to news and information or, as the recent tsunami relief effort has shown, co-ordinating campaigns and donations to help others.
