This new age of technology seems to have people burned out after a while. Its like an addiction that keeps calling you to respond as if you life depended on it. This article brings up good points, regarding Unplugging, I myself have thought of it as well. But so much of what we do today is tied closely into connecting in one way or another to a device to perform some sort of action. Ex. Work, school, medical, NASA, government. So I can see how one would want to resort to a place with no communication coming in or out to give one a sense of relief from the information highway for if only a brief time to regroup and relax to return to it refreshed with new and improved ideas of communication.
