I’m going to be talking about technophobia, media panics and how technology really affects the mind and brain, next Tuesday at the Royal Institution in London.
The talk will be a trip through the history of technology scares – from Ancient Greece to Facebook, a look at how the modern media deals with concerns about new communications tools, and a round-up of what we actually know about the impact of technology on ourselves.
The evening will be MC’ed by Dallas Campbell and I am told there will be musical accompaniment.
Relax, I won’t be singing. No technology on earth can withstand my terrible voice.
