Paul Miller is an American technology journalist from Springfield, Missouri and senior editor of The Verge. For the past year he decided to disconnect from the hyper-connected world in an attempt to ‘find himself’ and become more productive.
He abandoned the internet and disconnected from all social media, returning to a life before the internet, apps and smartphones.
His experiment gained worldwide attention when he published his article ‘I’m still here’ at The Verge. After a year of living ‘disconnected’ he published his findings and caused quite a discussion on hyperconnectivity and the influence of the internet on our daily lives!
