Paul Turns Off the Internet

Paul, he’s a bit of the (conservative) misfit over at The Verge but I like him well enough because he usually has valid points, good writing, tends to make me laugh, and on their podcast….he’s the dude that speaks most like me. Long pauses, umm’s, and a lot of thinking before he speaks.

He’s quitting the Internet.

Read Paul’s parting message and watch his parting video.

The video is pretty awesome, and well done. May have to bump the quality down a bit on a slow connection.

Reminds me a bit of turning off the TV, but this may be much more difficult.

    The opportunity, though, is the biggest of our generation (or the last one, for that matter). The opportunity is there for anyone (with or without a job) smart enough to take it–to develop a best in class skill, to tell a story, to spread the word, to be in demand, to satisfy real needs, to run from the mediocre middle and to change everything.

    ┬íNote! Like all revolutions, this is an opportunity, not a solution, not a guarantee. It’s an opportunity to poke and experiment and fail and discover dead ends on the way to making a difference. The old economy offered a guarantee–time plus education plus obedience = stability. The new one, not so much. The new one offers a chance for you to take a chance and make an impact.
