Five aspects of digital gluttony - the habitual and unthinking consumption of digital technology - are reviewed: equipment gluttony, storage gluttony, program gluttony, transmission gluttony, and image gluttony. The conclusion is that digital gluttony is basically a cultural problem and that the computing can play a large part in alleviating the problem.
