James Sturm's Online Hiatus: Essential Online Reading

I just stumbled on James Sturm's experiment on Slate involving staying off the Internet for a few weeks and seeing what happens.

The results have been marvelous, witty, wise, insightful, hilarious, and resonant—it's one of the best things I've seen in weeks. I think just about everyone would find a point of access here; that's one of the great things about it. I'm going to embed a few of my favorite panels and then leave you to read it.

There are eight installments; this is the first.


The story of the bunnies is one of the funniest and saddest things I’ve read lately. I also love anything that can get people to write real paper letters (as an NYU student of mine once called them, bragging to a friend about a gesture from her beau).
