Attempting 'digital minimalism'


Inspired by Cal Newport's Digital Minimalism, I am attempting a "digital declutter" for 30 days, until Nov. 1. I have deleted Facebook and Twitter from my phone and I will avoid them (except if I have to access them from my computer at work, for legitimate work reasons) and I will avoid other unnecessary technology (although I will keep blogging!). (The idea is that after 30 days, you reintroduce tech back into your life in a conscious and disciplined way; you don't necessarily quit Facebook, but you might access it once a week, on  your computer, not your phone,  to check on  your friends.) So please don't take offense if you post some really cool RAW related news on social media and I miss it; email me the news instead, or post a comment.

Addendum: Possibly related comment from Supergee, who recently took the plunge and got a smartphone.
