New York 2140
Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the most acclaimed science fiction authors of recent decades and the one who best transports us to dystopian worlds that not only narrate interesting adventures, but also put us in the shoes of the inhabitants of the Earth in the coming decades and centuries. With New York 2140 We will see how is the impact of the sea floods due to global warming and the way in which society begins to organize itself after the cataclysm. As interesting as it is absorbing.
As we live in troubled times about privacy and the power of control of certain technology corporations, nothing better than resorting to the original story, which brought us to the table the figure of Big Brother that controls and directs the destinies of some citizens with increasingly smaller plots of freedom. A story born from George Orwell’s own experience with the fascist and communist regimes of his time and that, curiously and in a completely different way, is back on everyone’s lips because of technology.
If George Orwell’s text, 1984makes you think that the same should take your foot off the accelerator and leave your digital life fallow for a while, nothing like Jaron Lanier’s treatise on how to quit social media. Or rather, why do it because as the father of Virtual Reality and one of the gurus of Silicon Valley for several decades, he knows perfectly well the tricks used by large corporations to find out about us and manipulate us. And it is that, believe it or not, every day you end up a little more manipulated than the previous one… and without realizing it.
