According to The Huffington Post, the lights may go out tonight.

Why?

A ‘digital de-tox’ begins tonight.

On March 1 at sundown, participating Americans will start a 24-hour digital detox — no texting, Instagramming or Pheeding — as part of the National Day of Unplugging.

One San Francisco-based unplugging party, Unplug SF, will celebrate going off the grid with device-free drinks, dancing and mingling, as well as a unique spotlight on our reliance on social media and technology. As soon as they check their cells at the door, guests will get a feel for what tweeting, writing on Facebook and sending e-mails would be like if, say, the internet never existed.

Thoughts?
