Shut down the internet and boost creativity.



Many people have suggested curtailing email to increase productivity. Pop legend Sir Elton John has gone one-step further. He suggests closing down the Internet for a period of 5 years.

He claims it is destroying good music, saying: “The Internet has stopped
people from going out and being with each other, creating stuff.

“Instead they sit at home and make their own records, which is sometimes OK
but it doesn’t bode well for long-term artistic vision.

Admittedly, he is talking about the music industry.

How do you think it will play out- will shutting down the Internet boost your creativity?
