This Challenge ran from the beginning of February. The format was different from last year; detoxers were offered a range of options, including 48hrs, seven days, and evenings & weekends for a defined period. Some people used a Punkt. MP 01, others used different brands of basic phones, and a couple of people went totally phone-free.
We noticed that even though it's only six months or so since the last Challenge, there had been a definite shift in people's attitudes to technology overload – ranging from what we saw in the reports as they arrive, to wider discussion on blogs and in the traditional media.
