No Facebook, no twitter, no smartphone, no email, no online gaming, no new notifications of the next big thing to happen in the world. His motive? To find the time to deal with some personal issues and to find extra time to draft his first novel. What did Paul find out? His issues were mostly internal, not external, and that leaving the internet allowed him to find and things to distract him from writing his first book. What will find out if you press play? One of the coolest social experiments ever embarked on in the 21st century.
