Today’s San Jose Mercury News has a ”Silicon Valley Dispatch” about our professor Larry Lessig’s month in Madagascar when he was completely off-line to “assert his independence from the digital grid — no blogging, limited e-mail, few phone calls — for a month.”  The story, “Let’s take a holiday from Net – Stanford Prof Services as Example,” by Mike Cassidy, suggests that we should all pull the plug on occasion:

A month might be a stretch for most of us.  But how about a week or two?  And what better time than Independence Day to consider pulling the plug on the digital world?
