52min2017ALL
The Internet is invading all aspects of your life. No longer confined to your computer or your phone, the Internet is now in garbage cans, refrigerators, and the infrastructure of our cities. The future will either be a surveillance nightmare or an eco-utopia, the outcome determined by startups in Silicon Valley and Shenzhen.

Today's 1984 Big Brother
Verified purchase
Nice visual overview of the current status-point with regard to the level at which the internet-controlled devices have seeped into every possible area at which data can be manipulated. In a way, this presentation very effectively documents how George Orwell's 1984 has metastasized onto 2020. My only critique of any significance is that the ethical bugs inherent in the design have either been knowingly allowed to have horrible outcomes, or somehow the structure was prematurely introduced with inconceivable consequences, which is absurd at quick glance if I can easily scale up a robust negation after less time than it takes to watch an entire Hollywood movie at the cinema! The major "Elephant in the room" confronting the Internet-of-Things is that it only aggregates desired data & applies it into requested systems in an expected positive transformation. A couple major dilemmas that immediately arise for me are: myriad of potential changes with no obvious Meta-Ethicist applying humane experiential judgment, and, secondarily, flawed initial data resulting from disasters, pandemics, terrorism, & every other abnormal situation is only fixed from external sources.

A Serious Issue
Verified purchase
I thought this was a cute documentary until I realized the guy had a deliberate hole in his sweater's gut area just to show off an android tattoo and how he was choosing randomness at the expense of the unhealthy and dusty home he lived in.

It would be better if we pointed out that people like this need mental health attention instead of celebrating them. This is really worrisome.

Spectacularly well done documentary
This film is by far the best thing out there dealing with the plethora of Internet-connected devices and all the weird and scary consequences of their ubiquitousness. The filmmaker (and the guy whose experience we follow in the film), Brett Gaylor, is hilarious, and the film is very well produced. It's definitely not just for the Internet-literate.

100% worth checking out!

Fascinating
Fascinating, eye-opening a must watch for our generation. I am grateful that the author didn't focus just on Western IoT but also visited China and explored how a dictatorship uses the connected technology. Real-Life Black mirror. Well-made.
