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 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?
