Technocracy is invading our environment. You can debate if this is a good thing or not. We can become slaves of all the technology around us and we can even become entangled in a “computer says no” verdict. Tech is there to support us in what we do. Sometimes tech can be great fun. We discuss the different aspects of tech in this podcast and our tech update items help pave the way through the conversation with Daniel.
