‘Digitox’ is is the story of my family’s ‘Tech Free Sundays’ – our experience giving up the internet for one day a week, every week for the last three years.It is not a book about the evils of technology, but it will teach you how to successfully diet your consumption of the internet and make yourself and your family happier, healthier, safer and smarter.
Mark was given his first computer (a BBC Micro) aged 10, played a few basic games, and started programming it shortly afterwards in an attempt to create better ones. After graduating with a first class honours degree in Business Studies & Technology he joined Dun & Bradstreet and has spent over two decades in the IT software industry, working all over the world and accumulating nearly two million air miles.
He currently works for Opentext, the worlds leading enterprise information management company, and shares his experiences at Oxford Brookes University as an associate lecturer.
He has been married to his beautiful Wife Caroline for twenty years, and together they have four children and a dog called Shelby. Everyone in the family (including the dog) is blond except him, which is slightly confusing and also quite sad, as he ruins the aesthetic of every group photograph.
