If you’re reading this, you probably read Part I of my social experiment, 25 Day Offline Holiday: Can a techie do it? I’m trying to live without the Internet for 25 days while I’m on vacation in Chile. Well, not absolutely without. It's available, but I’ve banned myself from receiving or answering emails or messages, playing with the apps on my phone… that sort of thing.
I am on an Offline Holiday. Can I survive it?
Day 8. Today, while running under the sun and watching the fields, I wondered what Bob would think about my 25-day experiment? Bob is my fellow Avast evangelist and like me, he’s extremely active on the Avast Forum. He makes presentations all over the United States about security, anti-malware, and how to be safe while connected. I guess he’s never recommended Avast to anyone offline. All he must be doing, while I'm on my offline vacation, is teaching people to be protected, have their antivirus fully updated, and so forth.
And what about David, another Avast evangelist? I wonder if he is solving all the issues on the Avast Forum? Would he survive in England without being connected? What about Asyn? Has he recommended that you read any Avast Blog articles yet? And Polonus? Is he fighting off online malware?
I’m not sure what my friends are doing, as I’ve been offline for over a week now.
Look for yourself: Join the Avast Community Forum and meet real people that can guide you through online security. Tell them I said hello.
Day 9. Nothing new. I’m bored because I can only read the local newspaper. I have a lot of time to watch movies. My health is very good: I lost some weight. But I don’t know for sure. Maybe it’s wishful thinking since I’m not following my app.
