…You can be too networked?


If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by the constant requirements of the social networking environments, then NOSO is for you. Designed to be a “real-world platform for temporary disengagement”, it lets you create NO Connections by scheduling NO Events with other NO Friends.

The events, which take place at cafes, parks, libraries, bookstores, and other public spaces, bring together participants whose identities remain unknown to one another. They agree to arrive at an assigned time and remain alone, quiet and un-connected. The events last for 1-30 minutes, and then participants disperse and return to their regular activities.

If shutting down your blogging, vlogging, podcasting, Skyping, texting, IMing, dating, trading, buying and selling self sounds like the perfect getaway, then sign up for the next NOSO, and enter the oasis.

…The Internet should be free?


With a little bit of clever URL hacking, free wireless Internet can be yours at a variety of hot spots including airports, hotels, bookstores, and coffee shops. You’ve got to get over the fact that you’re basically stealing from the man, and that they can track almost everything you do with your now free connection, but I guess some price has to be paid, right?
