Is well known that Simpsons show has addapted lots of flims into hilarious cartoon stories. Let’s go to digital dystopia case: We are in season 6, chapter “Treehouse of Horror V” where Homer accidentally goes back to dinosaur’s past and then, he kills a mosquito, When he’s back, Need Flanders is the leader of a 1984-style future.

This can be considered to reflect about how technology can influence our future. Is technology leading us to a world where we are perfectly controlled? Last weeks informations about massive spying on Europe should warn us about that risk. Is this fact impossible to avoid in digital future?
