I nearly lost it at "In early 2012 I was 26 years old and burnt out. I wanted a break from modern life." Ha ha ha, white people!

Did you guys at least skim the article before starting your knee-jerk snarking? Dude talks about how even after cutting the cable he still had tons of problems being a lazy piece of shit and failing to socialize with people to the point where his parents would send his sister to go see if he was still alive.

I didn't have a judgement one way or another on that one. It seems like there were positives and negatives to the experience. The story mostly reinforces the rather bland but "sensible" view that the internet is a useful tool and that use of that tool is good but abuse is not.

The outcome isn't earthshattering by any means, but I felt like the story of his personal discovery of that made for a nice read.

And even with that it's still an article that caters to white, thirty-something people in the middle class.

Welp, it might be useful to some. If he has something to say, the fact that he's a white middle-class guy is completely, hilariously irrelevant.

And the fact that he's in his thirties is... wait, what?

HEY FUCK YOU

anyway I think it's important that null results get reported. "man goes for a year without internet, learns nothing" is a good link for me to post next time some idiot on facebook complains we have too much technology.

Okay, the point of my comment is, it takes a certain white, 20 to 30-something, middle-class mindset to get paid for a taking a year off the internet to only come to the conclusion that the internet is not the source of your problems. The guy is basically airing his quarter-life crisis, which is also something nearly unique to middle-class whites. It's not that he doesn't have problems, it's that it's easy to forget that "Too much internet" is still only applicable to a portion of the world.

It's hilarious when 26-year-olds write sentences about feeling too pressured by the internet.

This completely SFW site has been saddled with a rather unfortunate URL: http://www.hollandshitfestival.nl/

As curator of the Molestation Nursery of Penisland, I take exception to your slanderous implications.
