Así es la vida del hombre más conectado del mundo

Todos sufrimos un amigo (virtual) de esos que comparten su vida en las redes sociales.

Review: ‘Dark Net’ Explores the Digital Age’s Toll on Us

The scariness of the digital age has been the peg for a number of newsmagazine segments and docu-series, many of them not going, conceptually, much beyond “Can you believe what some people are using the Internet for these days?”. “Dark Net,” an eight-part series that begins on Thursday night on Showtime, goes further, using examples of unsettling digital phenomena to ponder larger questions, like whether and how the digital age might be changing us as a species.

Nyheter Livet som cyborg har gjort honom harmonisk - och smal. Världens mest uppkopplade man Chris Dancy säger att alla sensorerna på kroppen trollat bort 40 kilos övervikt och tvingat honom in i ett hälsosamt livsmönster. Han rör sig en aning stelt över golvet. Det är alla sensorerna. En hjärtsensor som övervakar hjärtats funktioner, en kroppssensor som ser till att han håller ryggen rak och som ger honom elektriska stötar om han sjunker ihop för mycket.
