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He says his morning newspaper feels "out of date" and 18 hours off-line made him feel "isolated" and "disoriented".
