Yelp (With Apologies to Allen Ginsberg) narrated by Peter Coyote

Shabbat is a very old idea — 5000 years old. Just take a break one day a week. I desperately needed a « technology shabbat. » Recently addicted to tweeting, I became that person I hated who pulled out her iPhone while actually talking to someone — sneaking email fixes in bathroom stalls. It was getting ugly.

Sophocles once said, « nothing vast enters the life of mortals without a curse, » and this couldn’t be more true of technology.
My husband (artist & robotics professor Ken Goldberg) and I were thinking about the « curse » part. We both love technology and have devoted our careers to experimenting with it, but could we unplug for one day a week? So Ken and I decided to try to truly power down one day a week. Inspired by this concept, we reworked Ginsberg’s « Howl, » into « Yelp. » Then I made a little film about it and Peter Coyote lent his great voice.
