The Simpson’s digital dystopia #edcmooc

ImagenIs 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. In this chapter we can see how technology can be use to surveil humans and get them controlled.

(I couldn¨’t find the video on youtube)

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?

  1. I think it all comes back to technological determinism – just because something can be done, it doesn’t follow that it should be done – but most of the time it will be done anyway.
