In this episode, Michael Taylor and William Clouston discuss the increasing integration of digital technology into our lives.
Digital technology offers many benefits, such as instant communication and access to information and entertainment. While some are concerned about implications for privacy, many people seem prepared to ‘pay with their data’ for the convenience it offers.
But how convenient is it?
William and Michael argue that the enforced use of digital technology for everyday activities – paying for parking, travelling by train, even getting a drink of water – is often inefficient, over-complex, fragile and dehumanising.
