Web junkie and musical man-whore John Mayer recently joined the hip masses over on Tumblr (the microblogging site for you grandparents out there), but now it seems he’s ditching his digital pals in favor of a web detox. Ol’ hunky bones has declared that he’ll be spending the first week of the New Year doing a self-designed “One Week Digital Cleanse,” by following these guidelines:
- Email only from laptop or desktop computers.
- cell phones can only be used to make calls, and no text messages or e-mails are allowed – if you receive a text, you must reply in voice over the phone. E-mails must be returned from a laptop or desktop computer.
- No use of Twitter or any other social networking site – this includes reading as well as posting.
- No visiting of any entertainment or gossip sites. (No need to detail which ones – you know what they are.)
John’s no stranger to the world wide web wasteland. The guy’s a self-proclaimed Blackberry addict, and he’s got an official website, two blogs (the one on his site and his Tumblr), a MySpace page, a Facebook page, and is a well known celebrity Twitter-er, with over 2.8 million fans and 2,800 tweets. In fact, just the day before his cleanse, John tweeted 10 times. Our guess is that after a week without hashtags, he’ll be pounding out 140 characters every 140 seconds. [Photo: GettyImages]
