The 7 (digital) deadly sins

The Guardian have made a mini-site about what they call the '7 deadly digital sins'

It's pretty cool, with lots of videos, stories, polls and articles about how people use tech badly and the effects it has on us.

I found myself agreeing with a lot of it, especially some of the bits in the 'envy' section - I do get a bit jealous when a friend uploads amazing holiday pics of somewhere exotic onto Facebook, for example!

It's really worth a visit


Plus, there's a video of Bill Bailey with a giant tortoise! What's not to like?*

* P.s. after browsing around the site for a bit, you'll realise how ironic that sentence is!

    It's quite a big site, so it might not work on mobile devices or on slow internet connections.
    Maybe try on a computer in Chrome or Firefox?

    I can confirm it works in firefox. I'm not sure what to think of it, certainly is interesting but also feels a little off in places. Perhaps it hits a little close to home :d

    Only had a quick watch of Wrath - it was quite interesting on that subject, how social media backlashes, lynchmobs can flare up and be taken over.

    I'd like to watch a few more of them, however those involved are a little too 'Guardian' for me. They're just a bit safe and predictable.
