You know the seven sins. But are you committing them digitally? The National Film Board of Canada teams up with Jam3 (they previously worked together on "Bear71") as well as the Guardian for "Seven Digital Deadly Sins." The interactive documentary explores each sin and how you might be engaging in them online -- from envy over a friend's amazing Instagram photos, to lust when you participate in an extramarital affair online.

The site was launched in conjunction with a special edition of the Guardian's weekend magazine, on the same topic, which explores the shifting moralities associated with the digital age. Celebs like English singer-songwriter Billy Brag (who admits to Googling himself daily) to comic Mary Walsh (who is obsessed with Facebook) appear in films. The site also asks you to say whether you condemn the sin, and whether you're guilty of it.
