I Need a Virtual Break. No, Really. – New York Times


In short, my name is Mark, and I’m a techno-addict. But after my airplane experience, I decided to do something about it. Thus began my “secular Sabbath” – a term I found floating around on blogs – a day a week where I would be free of screens, bells and beeps. An old-fashioned day not only of rest but of relief.

Mark Bittman is fast becoming one of my favourite NYTimes writers – no mean feat given the stellar quality of the paper. His “Minimalist” food columns have made a non-resentful (if not spectacular) cook out of me, thanks to their his quick, user-friendly recipes. But his other writing is just as entertaining, as evidenced by this column about a self-enforced unplugging from the rat race.
