Il secondo Digital Detox Challenge di Punkt., inverno 2017.

Questa sfida è stata lanciata all’inizio di Febbraio. Il formato è stato diverso rispetto all’anno precednte; ai partecipanti è stata offerta una gamma di opzioni, tra cui le canoniche 48 ore, una settimana o le sere e i weekend per un determinato periodo di tempo. Alcuni hanno utilizzato un Punkt. MP 01., altri diverse marche di telefoni minimali, mentre un paio di persone hanno partecipato rimanendo totalmente prive di telefono cellulare.

Abbiamo notato che nonostante fossero trascorsi solo sei mesi dall’ultimo Challenge, c’è stato un netto cambiamento nell’atteggiamento delle persone verso il sovraccarico tecnologico – da quello che è stato raccontato nei loro report, a una piu ampia discussione sui blog e attraverso i media tradizionali.
