People Unplugged is a new website featuring TV-critical articles and book reviews.

A few of the well known anti-TV websites out there have unfortunately disappeared from the Internet, and others haven't been updated for a long time.

People Unplugged attempts to fill this gap with timely information about the dangers of TV. Information technology and internet privacy are also issues that will be discussed.
