Twentysomething “Goes Amish,” Unplugs for 3 Months

Jake Reilly, a grad student in Chicago, avoided cellphone, e-mail and social media for 90 days in his “Going Amish Project.” The experiment took Reilly, 24, from his normal life of following 250 people on Twitter and sending 1500 texts per month to using courtesy phones at a nearby hospital and writing chalk messages on friends’ sidewalks. He credits the project with making him more creative and more productive, giving him more free time and better grades. He shares his unplugging story in an online slideshow.
