Unplug this Friday

Monday, April 04, 2011

Amherst College has a message for students -- unplug.

The Massachusetts liberal arts school is asking students to turn off their gizmos -- at least for a few minutes this coming Friday.

The idea is to get the students thinking about the harmful effects of excessive technology use.

The school would like students to power-down their laptops, smartphones and iPods for at least 15 minutes Friday.

Who knows?

The college kids may find that friending doesn't have to involve a computer or Facebook.
