People are far too dependent on the internet for this to have any impact at all, and will only lead to having the people that already have friends to have a "funny story" to tell when it's all over. Nothing will have changed, and nobody will become less dependent. They'll all flock back to their precious Facebook to tell everyone how it went, and the addiction will restart from where it was the day before.

Again, the goal isn't to stop people from using the Internet, or make them less dependent on it. It's just for one day. It's to prove that you do have willpower over using it. I see your point, though. However, this cause is like going without food or electricity, for a day. It's to live the life of a different person, sort of. Not using the Internet isn't as daring as those two things, but it's still something.

Btw, how many people in the world use it as their only outlet for socialization? Maybe that's to prove that they can use a change, and interact with people in the real world... or not. Again, it's only a day.

I won't have any access to the internet for the next week, anyway, because I'm on vacation.

Otherwise, I couldn't do it - I'll admit, at home I'm dependent on the internet.

But if we go without the Internet for a day, we're not gonna die, immediately.

A way where great battles can be won. Where we, the public, can unite, to do justice to the corruption caused. A way to survive.

I agree with your picture, no IE, ever. But seriously, fuck the idea. I'm using the Internet, regardless of some random half-assed facebook idea.

I can go without the internet for a day anyway, it's easy.

While I support the notion of the informative concept that is the internet, I disagree with the level of immobilization that the current technologies force upon users.

I vie for this.

OK, here's the plan, we each pick a popular website, and subject it to bandwidth rape, making that day the internet's most busy day ever. Plan much?

How is it random and half-assed? What was the host of the event missing?

One person to subject a popular site to bandwidth rape, that would be pretty hard for one person to do, why not everyone do the same site?

I will not obstain from using it, because frankly, I have no idea what it means. I would guess that it was a typo and they meant abstain, but I'm not a presumptuous cock, so I'll waste my time writing this.

But that's, like, the day before I go back to school. I need to get out every last bit of epicness and hilarity I can from this machine.

I use Firefox anyway, so whatever.

He said the Internet not IE, fuckin' read... Yean I'll do this if I have someone to hang out that day, but if not you can count me out. Yeah, a big part of my social life is on the computer, so what? I like to think that everyone could get off of the internet for one day and go see the world though. =]

Well, if you obviously have to use the Internet for it, then yes.

Sorry, but to me, depositing my points and B/Ping here on NG is a far bigger priority than any crazy ideal of real-life interaction. Plus, fuck Facebook, social networking BS and all that, don't see why the NG admins seem to want to emulate shit sites like that.

OR.

We could use the internet and still be active in our social community.

Eh? Eh?

Besides, the internet is used for more than games and porn, you know. Not all of us become robots when we use it.

And to your proposal of using phone books and such... the internet is just a technological innovation to all of that stuff. It's made finding information that much easier, and is embraced because of it. I do appreciate your good intentions, though.
