Email Someone Who You Think Spends Too Much Time on Gadgets or Internet

"When is the last time you asked a human instead of asking Google? I’m worried you’re going to forget how to say words out loud. When is the last time you saw an uncaptioned cat?"

If you know someone who is addicted to the screen, express your concern by sending him or her an intervention email.

Called Unplug Your Friends, this viral site is put up by Meetup in an effort to encourage people to get outside and meet other people face-to-face and not face-to-screen.

Its a slightly humorous approach to deal with this growing problem of "online addiction" but still pretty relevant. Thanks Andy and Mike.
