I actually think that turning off the computer does a lot of good. Less problems and irritations than expected. When I think about doing this experiment I frankly get a sense of enthusiasm rather than a feeling of “how do I get used to this?”.

You’re right to call it a digital addiction. It is just like an addiction because once you’re through that initial detoxification phase, then you start feeling good again. I’m secretly jealous. I know this experiment is definitely definitely definitely no holiday for you. But it can seem like it for an outsider. No computer, what a peace!

To answer your question: I would miss the fact that I can easily contact people all over the world. I notice that your world has become smaller now. But … smaller … not emptier! I’m jealous … and I hope that more people will start to follow you.
