The truth is we are all liars.

One thing is certain about human nature…we’re born talkers. Twelve billion text messages are sent worldwide, every day. Thirteen million Canadians use Facebook. But is all that access to technology making us happy?

Crackberry’d: The Truth About Information Overload explores how technology devices are affecting our lives and offers some simple solutions for managing computer and cell phone use. Featuring interviews with Liberal MP Justin Trudeau and Don Tapscott, author of Wikinomics, Grown Up Digital and more.
