On today's episode we unplug. We go analog. We take off the CD and put on the Vinyl (is any of this making sense?) In today's episode we talk about that much needed balance that all geeks need: time where we step out of the virtual and into the real world. If this is as tough for you as it is for MF and Rob, it's definitely an issue that needs to be talked about and addressed...for our spiritual health, physical health, the health of our relationships and the health of our faith.
So, in this episode, we talk about just why we should take time to "live analog". Rob talks about the ideas origins in audio recording and we suggest that unplugging is a great way to feed our creativity and enhance our work. We talk about spending time alone, spending time with familiy, and, darnit, we shame you into turning off your television set and cell phone.
We talk about how turning off the computer when you're not actually working can make a huge difference in learning to live analog. We hit all the obvious topics such as enjoying the outdoors and exercising, and we take it one step further by talking about reading more and finding a 'transitional' activity. We cap it all off by talking about the idea of Sabbath and challenge you to start living analog on your Sabbath day.
Before all this, we hit lots of user feedback and give you a geeky way to celebrate Lent. We then share the oh-so-sad-news that there will be no podcast next week. So take that as a reminder to LIVE ANALOG!
