Podcast Interview - Is High Tech Turning Us Into the Borg?



John Danaher

Social Network Show

Posted: Feb 1, 2016


John Danaher, IEET Affiliate Scholar, recently had the privilege of being a guest on the Social Network Show podcast. The show is hosted by Dr Jane Karwoski and deals with the impact of technology, particularly social networking technology, on society. Dr Karwoski invited him on to talk about the Borg-likeness of the modern world. Regular readers of the blog will know that this is a topic John is quite interested in, having written a couple of posts about it, and he was pleased to be given the opportunity to talk about it on the podcast.

Listen to the podcast here.

It was great to discover John as he is talented in expressing concepts clearly and so understandably for the public. I teach a course in Sensation and Perception and use ethical questions around augmented reality to relate S&P to students' life in our social/technological environment. They really engage in the online discussions on topics like this!
