Assignment: How do you unplug yourself?
iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created August 5, 2011 by
For many of us, mid-August is the dog days of summer: the hottest, stickiest time of year. Those long hours tethered to a desk in front of a computer might be getting just that much more difficult to bear.
CNN and Mashable want to know what you do to disconnect. How do you get away from your life online? Do you enjoy being outdoors? Maybe you’re able to get away for an extended period of time, or perhaps you have the perfect backyard set-up for cooling off and losing yourself in summer.
Send us your photos and videos of how you unplug, and tell us: Do you miss technology? How important is it to you to break from your favorite gadgets and websites? You can upload your photos and videos by using the assignment page, or email it to iReport. Instagram and Picplz users, we encourage you to post your images there, too, and tag them with #disconnect. Please submit your photos and videos by Monday, August 15. The best submissions could be featured on CNN and Mashable.
