This Week on @katiecouric: William Powers, author of "Hamlet's BlackBerry"

You can find author William Powers on Twitter, but don't expect him to fill your homepage with updates.

For Powers, the author of "Hamlet's BlackBerry,"  it's all about living a new philosophy for the digital age: one tweet a day. And come Friday? It's Internet Sabbath in the Powers house. His entire family gets disconnected - in order to reconnect with each other.

The book challenges us to take a look at the impact an overly digital day can have on our relationships offline, the ones that matter most.

Powers will be our guest this week on @katiecouric, and as we prepare for the interview, Katie wants to know - what's your digital philosophy? Do you ever completely disconnect from the Internet or your smart phone? Have you ever thought about limiting your time on your favorite blogs or Facebook? Or is the idea of doing that feel simply overrated to you?

Let us know in the comment section below, on Katie's Facebook page or via Twitter. Or, if you have a question for us about the book or unplugging in general, send it along! We'll ask some of your questions during the web show.
