Ask a Baby boomer where they were when they heard JFK was assassinated and they will remember. Ask me where I was when I heard Kurt Cobain died and I will tell you every little detail of that day. It’s part of human nature to never forget the circumstances surrounding events that impact your life.
I distinctly remember my first internet experience. It was mid-February, 1995. I was in Oklahoma City, of all places, taking a business class. I went down to the computer lab late in the evening and the guy that was teaching our Excel class was in the lab, shredding on the keyboard of his IBM laptop.
“What are you doing over there,” I asked.
“Talking to my friend in Seattle,” he said.
“How are you doing that,” I said.
You probably remember the first time you got online – and whether it was a decade ago or just a month ago, you’re obviously still here because it’s an integral part of your life.
How much would you need to get paid to get off the internet for a year?
As a marketer with a pulse and a conscious, the best thing I can say about the internet is that life makes more sense with it than without it.
So the question for you is – how much would you need to get paid to get off the internet for a year? No Facebook and Twitter. No Pinterest. No Google. And no checking your Klout score every morning (yeah, I never do that either).
