Consider going a day without gadgets: a day of unplugging.  I'm in.*

Thinking about unplugging, I'm kind of sad that I don't do it more often.  Perhaps I should incorporate it more regularly, perhaps not 24 hours at a time, but at least set aside some regular non-computer time--perhaps something like sunrise to sunset on Sundays.  (Which would allow for family gchatting in the evenings.)

The whole point of this is to become more aware of the non-digital world.  There is so much beauty and complexity that surrounds me, but I spend the majority of my waking time staring at one two-dimensional thing: a computer screen.

* My rules for the day of unplugging: cell phone, laptop, and office computer all off for the sunset to sunset time period.
