The last 30 years has seen an increase in our dependence on digital networks, altering how we work, how we spend our leisure time, how we consume and how we construct our relationships. Digital technology is often heralded as the harbinger of progressive change but what are the social, environmental and personal costs of a digital future?

What are the psycho/social implications of the internet?
