As you read this, I'm already disconnected. Thursday afternoon I called my cable provider and canceled my internet service at home. It could vanish at any time.
It feels like I'm losing my connection to the outside world - it's a bit horrifying. For a guy who listens to podcasts, has a blog, facebook, email, plays fantasy baseball, and owns a mac with regular software updates - this is quite a step. Truth be told, it's a decision I've been considering with for quite some time. After more than a few fruitless hours flushed away while flopped lazily on my sofa, I'm leaving the grid.
I'll keep you updated on my attempt to de-tangle myself from the web. While I continue to post from other locations, you can track my progress. It might last for 30 days. It might be 60. It might be permanent. But I'm guessing that before too long I won't miss it anymore.
Instead, I'll save $40/month. I'll read a book. Or swim in my pool. Or go to the gym. Or watch a sunset at the beach.
Maybe I'm not losing anything after all.
