Bucking the trend of technology that allows people to tell everyone that they've checked into their local restaurant, café or bar, the creators of the National Day of Unplugging have developed a smartphone app that helps users "check out".
Stephen Prothero, author of "God is Not One," and chief editorial consultant for the PBS "God in America" series, announced with seeming surprise, "I survived!" after taking the Sabbath Manifesto "Unplug Challenge."
Frank Aldorf, executive creative director of Hubble Innovations, was the most recent person to take our Sabbath Manifesto "Unplug Challenge," shutting off his cell phone and computer for 24 hours last weekend.
Once a month, an "A-lister" will unplug from cell phones and PDAs, power down computers and tune in to the world. After the 24 hours, the A-lister will report on the experience right here in the Huffington Post.
