Disconnected is a student-made documentary that follows three Carleton students as they attempt to go computer-less for at least three weeks.  The documentary resonates with me, as I too am a college student admittedly addicted to my computer, and I like how Disconnected focuses not only on the students’ desires to use computers recreationally, but also on the ways in which computers have become necessary to how colleges run – for example, online timesheets for student employment, computer programs for Chinese assignments, and Library search engines instead of physical card catalogues.  I highly recommend this film, which you can watch online at Hulu.  Here is the trailer:
