"National Day of Unplugging": Is this giving up technology for Lent?


I’m not much for ceremonial observations of Lent, but today (mabe starting yesterday) is supposed to be the “National Day of Unplugging”, where people “give up” using cell phones and laptops (desktops seem to be OK).  Here’s the major link.

The idea is supposed to be engaging people, and building social capital.

Are people supposed to give up blogging, tweeting, and social media?
  
At nearby churches, the youth recently did their “30 hour fasts” to recognize hunger (see my Moives blog yesterday), but what do they do with the time?  Make a short film.
