On the No
Internet Week website, a very amusing documentary to what happens when five digital natives are forced to go offline for a week.
It has taken over our lives and permeates every moment. It even has its own week.
And it's the annual occurrence of Internet Week that made us think? have we become addicted to the internet? And if we have, what would happen if 5 digital natives were forced to go cold turkey for a week? Would it be reminiscent of a scene from Trainspotting? Or would they regress to some kind of IRL utopia?
We followed these five internet addicts around for a week. This is the result.
