Taking two weeks off from the internet, newspapers, magazines, TV and radio is an interesting exercise. The consequent gap in knowledge is not large but the urge to get back into the news stream is compelling. I spent the weekend reading newspapers and magazines to get a feel for what I missed. It doesn't seem like much.

The benefit of isolation is that it teaches one how much of life goes on without a constant stream of information to distract one. It also is a reminder that most people live this way. They have the necessary chores of life that take away the time they might spend with news reading. They are aware of major news headlines but not much else, and they do well in self-imposed isolation. The PR challenge in communicating to them is large. It has always been this way and will always be.
