Since childhood we’d been promised that the 21st century would bring us dramatic new technologies like flying cars and utopian cities. Instead it bought us the smartphone, social media, virtual societies and online gaming. As it turns out these technologies began to transform society almost as dramatically as the moon colonies we’d been expecting.
DSKNECTD: Is Technology Changing Us? is a sobering and definitive exploration of how digital communication technology has intruded our lives, and changed society in the process. Covering subjects ranging from online pornography and sexting to social media narcissism and gaming addiction, DSKNECTD surveys the changes to the digital landscape that in just one decade have profoundly altered the way we connect to those around us.
Intelligently crafted from groundbreaking new research and the experiences of ordinary people, DSKNECTD examines how these technologies are changing the way we interact and experience each other – for the good and for the bad.
