And I'll paste it here:
Sabbath becomes trendy!
Fourth Commandment makes a comeback!

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?
FYI, this is currently the lead story on CNN.com:

Do you use Groupon, Living Social, Buy With Me, Scout Mob and all the other daily deals sites. Then you will love ‘That Free Thing’

Could you use an additional 450,000 + new people visiting your site at No Cost to you - Ever?
