Log Off the Internet Day was started by a group of activists and thinkers in 1999 to make the public aware of the impacting is making on real life communities. Log Off the Internet Day is celebrated on the first Saturday after the start of summer in your hemisphere on which you are supposed to stay off the internet. No email, chat, IMs, gameplaying or surfing. A time to go to a movie, see some friends, ride a bike, be with your family.

I totally celebrated Log Off the Internet Day and went for a bike ride.
