Don’t Be Anyone’s Tool (#773)

7 Comments

Use the tool, don't become the tool. A new documentary from Netfilx exposes how social media and search engines are actively working to addict us to their devices and destroying the fabric of our culture. This story is told by the engineers who developed these tools and then left the industry because of how their products are being used when they were monetized for maximum profit. Wayne and Kyle talk about the technology that has the potential to connect us, is instead being used to control us, monetize us, and divide us. After viewing the film Kyle and Wayne talk about its implications in our culture and their own lives. They discuss strategies they use to ensure that they can enjoy the Internet as a tool, rather than become the tool the Internet uses to sell their wares.
