About age 12 he started to use the internet, and since then he grew up with the use of the internet. His job required using internet, and when he would get home he played video games for fun, so it came to the point that he decided that he did not wanted to use the internet for year. On April, 30th, 2012 at 11:59pm he was off the internet for the whole year. As he was starting it was going very well, and loved it, he said that it felt like a relief to him, and it was fun for him to actually go in a library and do research, and look up in a atlas to get somewhere. He visited his brother and sister, and he felt close to his sister because for the first time he would actually listen to her, and she even like the new him because he was not so into the internet.

You would think that people would rather be talking to someone than being on Facebook and Instagram. As I was sitting there watching everyone being in their smartphones I did not notice how the technology has all of us so engrossed in the internet, it is like if we are in our little own world or inside a cave.

This reminded in how technology is, the technology is our caves where...
