In the last 6 months, technology has become a lifeline for so many of us to stay connected. However, the same technology platforms that connect us also control us.
The new Netflix documentary, The Social Dilemma, offers us a glimpse into how a small number of designers in Silicon Valley are quietly reprogramming civilization.
