Now Playing: 5-3-13 Marketplace Tech: Quitting the Internet cold turkey

A slice of digital cold turkey: On May 1 of 2012, Paul Miller at the tech site The Verge cut himself off from the Internet. No web, no streaming, no email, no texts or voicemails either. It's now a year later, and Paul has just woken up. He says we should all be impressed at how well we use something as complex as the Internet, but also describes his own euphoria after cutting himself off.
