Wishing you a happy, analog Thanksgiving

Hard to believe as it may be, Thanksgiving is upon us once again. To those in the U.S. who celebrate it, I wish you and your family the best, and I urge you to strive for a strictly analog holiday.

Most days, we're surrounded by our gadgets and constantly connected to our digital families. But Thanksgiving is a day reserved for real family (and friends). Put your technology away and enjoy their company (and some turkey).

Here's the deal: you're allowed one "happy Thanksgiving" tweet or Facebook status. No cat pictures or stupid GIFs should be shared today—those may resume first thing in the morning. Don't even think about checking in on Foursquare. Everyone knows where you are—you're at your home, or someone else's.

Keep it simple and analog today. Enjoy the company of your family and friends, and be grateful for their presence in your life. Anything could be lost at any moment, so appreciate what you're fortunate enough to have on this fine November Thursday.

Have a beautiful day, all.
