NYT reporter disconnects from internet for a week, vlogs results: prison or paradise?


New York Times media columnist David Carr, a guy whose life and livelihood depend on being plugged in to a daily stream of stimuli from the web, Twitter, email, and the like, unplugs for a week on a 9-mile island in the Bahamas. He took along a little Flip video recorder and captured daily diaries, which are boiled down to a punchy little piece you can watch here: Video Link. (The NYT being the NYT, they don't allow you to embed it). It's a fun piece.
