After watching ‘Nosedive,’ I deleted all social media apps

‘Nosedive’ uses distinct aesthetics to depict a superficial world

Technology will not replace the basic instinct of human interaction

As a whole, I'm not fond of this show. It seems a bit much to me. That's exactly how I feel about this episode too.

It would be shocking if the human race could manage to get even more dependent on tech, but new things are always coming.

Review of Hated in the Nation

I decided to review my favorite episode of the Netflix series "Black Mirror." Hated in the Nation is my personal favorite for several reasons, and I believe it says a lot about the (theoretical) future influence of technology and the media on our lives.
