Would you be able to unplug for 3 weeks?

I just finished watching this student film about students at Carlton College who, for a project for a documentary film class, went three weeks without using computers. It was interesting and raised some interesting questions. Have we really grown so dependent on technology? How much of our online time is wasted? What are we missing out by being plugged in?

What I found most interesting was the feeling all participants had that their choice to unplug inconvenienced others. It illustrates that we are not only dependent on technology ourselves but we are dependent on others using it as well.
