Paul Miller is an American Technology Journalist from Springfield, Missouri and senior editor for The Verge. During the past year he decided to disconnect from the hyperconnected world in an attempt to ‘find himself’ and become more productive.
He abandoned the internet and disconnected from all Social Media, returning to a life before the net, apps and smartphones.
His experiment gained worldwide media attention when he published his article ‘I’m still here’ at The Verge. After a year of living ‘disconnected’ he published his findings and caused quite a discussion on hyperconnectivity and the influence of the internet on our daily lives.
At TEDxEutropolis Paul Miller spoke on his experiment ‘Without the Internet’ and his view on the intertwined worlds of living both online and offline. Check it out below…
