I’m planning to go on an Internet “diet” this year, cutting down on unnecessary and time-consuming online activities and unsubscribing from useless, extraneous, or redundant free services. I just want to reduce my online presence to the bare essentials. (It may please you to know that Blogger and my home page are NOT among the accounts I plan to delete.) I will, however, unregister myself from ICQ, Hotmail, Mailcity, Unimobile, and a slew of other online services. Those of you who ICQ me a lot (which doesn’t happen much, anyway), I’ll be making myself accessible through email instead.
