Dsknectd: Is Technology Changing Us?

Synopsis
Since childhood, we’ve been promised that the 21st century would bring dramatic new technologies, like flying cars and robots in every home. Instead, it brought the smartphone, social media, and virtual societies. These technologies have revolutionised our lives almost as dramatically as the moon colonies promised. Now, over a decade into the digital revolution, DSKNCTD explores how digital communication technologies are profoundly changing the way we interact and experience each other, and challenges us to question whether these changes are for the better. The programme is streamed for subscribers wishing to rent for three years or in perpetuity.
