Via Nicholas Danes I came across the video of Arun Maini (Mrwhosetheboss): “I’m worried about humanity’s future”. In this he addresses some good aspects. It’s about the impact of technology on our lives, society and behaviour. For example, he talks about the fact that algorithms are increasingly trying to keep us in front of the screen for as long as possible, that echo chambers are creating more and more negativity, and that we may soon no longer be able to distinguish between fiction and reality because of AI.

And I think he is right. I, too, often wonder. I wonder why people see a conspiracy behind Corona, or storm the Capitol. Basically, these are some consequences of technology. This should make us think…
