Time magazine’s Techland section conducted a massive, fascinating international poll and found that everyone in the entire world is unable to simply leave their phone in their pockets. Among the findings:

  • 84 percent of respondents said that they could not go a single day without their cellphones.


  • 50 percent of Americans sleep with their phone next to them like a teddy bear or a spouse, a number that includes more than 80 percent of 18-24 year olds.


  • 20 percent of respondents check their phone every 10 minutes.


  • 24 percent said they had used text messages to set up a rendezvous with someone they were having an affair with, a number that includes 56 percent of Chinese respondents.

Embark on a personal quest to “unplug” for one day (or a week, if you’re that brave!). It could be one player or the entire show. Create serial content by checking in the next day, sharing the woes (or joys) of the experience without your cell phone, and any drama created by being unreachable.
