Year Offline


A year ago, on 30 April 2012, technology journalist Paul Miller disconnected from the internet completely and went on to spend an entire year offline—two days ago, his year-long break from virtual connectivity came to an end and he is ready to tell us about his internet-free journey.

Throughout the year, Miller has documented his life without the internet—something that many people in today’s tech-obsessed world will think is an impossible venture—on The Verge.

Having decided to leave the internet to “find the real Paul”, he came to the conclusion that “there’s a lot of ‘reality’ in the virtual, and a lot of ‘virtual’ in our reality”—more importantly, he realized that our “modern problems” have lesser to do with the internet than we will think.
