Inspired by a high school's "Digital Blackout" campaign, where students went without Facebook, e-mail or texting for an entire week, journalist Michael Stusser explores both sides of the technological divide in "Sleeping with Siri." Jumping first into the digital madness with a Techno-Gorge, Stusser explores every single technological opportunity available, 24 hours a day, Foursquaring at every location, Skyping in the car and Tweeting, Pinning and "Liking" everything in sight. He then dropped out entirely for a second week, with no computer, e-mail or social networks, availing himself of the now lost icons of a by-gone era, including phone booths, land-lines, libraries, paper maps and letter writing. "Sleeping with Siri" was originally commissioned as an article for the Village Voice Media group: http://www.seattleweekly.com/2012-11-...
