My Prediction for CNN.com for 2012: 24×6 – Take a Day Off

Jan 1, 2012   //   by Rabbi Jamie Korngold   //   God Upgrade Updates  //  Comments Off

I was asked by CNN to predict what awaits us in 2012.

My prediction is #9 on their lead story:
http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2012/01/01/12-faith-based-predictions-for-2012/

And I’ll paste it here:

Sabbath becomes trendy!

Fourth Commandment makes a comeback!

Sabbath named Time’s person of the year!

A new movement sweeps the country. They call themselves 24/6. Worn out by being tethered to the grid 24/7, sick of being accessible all hours of the day, inundated by updates, upgrades, and breaking news, Americans finally rebel, demanding, “We need a day off.”

People all over the country go offline for 24 hours every week. The simple break from the frenetic pace results in lowered cholesterol levels, fewer speeding tickets, and a reduction in marital strife. Peace, tranquility and contentment spread like wildfire.

–Jamie Korngold, rabbi and author of “The God Upgrade”

What do you think? Any chance of 24/6 coming to fruition?
