Could you go web free for a day?

BBC Technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones goes a day without access to the web to see if it makes him connect with people more.

More than 85% of Londoners use the internet - more than anywhere else in the country - but a BBC London poll shows very few use it as part of their social lives.

The BBC's technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones decided to go a day without the web to see if it would encourage him to connect more with people.

He says his morning newspaper feels "out of date" and 18 hours off-line made him feel "isolated" and "disoriented".
