This entertaining article is the first post in a 6-part series where the author, a cartoonist/writer, writes about his experiences of going offline for 4 months. I enjoyed the series and the cartoons. I attempted a similar experiment (though I only refrained from all social media for 6 weeks) earlier this year. The experience, and the insights one gains from such experiments are really rewarding. Give it a try sometime. Meanwhile, enjoy some of the cartoons.
