      If I could go to Tanzania (my family too) and help out ecologists and epidemiologists working there, then definitely. I’d find it REALLY hard though to go electronics free in my usual environment though.

      I need my computer to do analysis and write papers… Would I get special dispensation for work purposes? If not, I’m buying that ticket to Tanzania!

      I’d be able to live for a month, certainly. And it might be quite fun to ‘switch off’! But I wouldn’t be able to do my current job without any electronics. I use a computer almost every day at work.
