The Great Indoors
Exploring technology’s role in the new dawn, our new world
Society is undergoing rapid change in the ways we are educated, where we work and how we are entertained. We’ve all had to undergo a shift in how we live and conduct everyday activities like banking, shopping, and even how we visit our doctors.
A wholesale cultural transformation is taking place in real time which is all underpinned and accelerated by technology. The adoption of new technological behaviors in response to the pandemic has – in an instant – accelerated to levels that were not expected for many more years.
Welcome to the Great Indoors, Season 2, where we continue to explore the many facets of societal change in our new world.
