Would you get a feed?

Janie When I think about this topic, I can’t help but compare it to cell phones now and the people who say that it increases chances of cancer. If you were part of a society in which the feed was the norm and seemingly the main form of communication and considering that it allows for instant internet access and television streaming and suchlike, would you get one? Consider also that if you were against the feed, you would be considered a freak who yells radical doomsday things on street corners. Be honest. Thoughts?


Rachel I wouldn't, but I would imagine it would make things extremely inconvenient. I am one of the few who still don't have a smart phone, and I feel like this would just be an extension of that.

Google glasses are analogous to the feed in many ways. However, I don't think I want technology intruding on my life and consciousness any more than it already does. With the internet and cell phones, we have a choice, however illusory, of what to watch, read, absorb, etc. A feed would free us from these choices.

Completely agree Matthew. The goosebumps are not the good kind. Theres certain privacy breeches in the internet and further integration of tech that is fascinating and terrifying at the same time. We just have to remember to unplug and continue making choices.
