Computer Shutdown Day Today

Is your computer still on as you browse through this post? Today is 24th March and its time to switch off your computer as the Computer shutdown day we talked about is finally here.

Shutdown day is one of the biggest global experiments to find out how many people can go without a computer for one whole day. This is what the website displays right now –

“We’ve teamed up with the National Laptop Foundation, a new non-profit organisation launching on World Earth Day, to help underprivileged children, the elderly and schools and doctors in third world countries have access to the internet, by recycling & refurbishing old unwanted & broken computers.

We want to raise $100,000 to help this cause and to start work on the next Shutdown Day and organise events in cities around the world. Please help be a part of this.”

Can you live without your computer with internet for one full day? Its the weekend so I guess it would help to support the event. Shutdown your computer and check out the real life. Share the joy…
