Season 3 of Black Mirror is out on Netflix, and if you are not familiar with the dystopian series I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in technology and the role it plays in our lives. 

Created by the brilliant but ever techno-sceptic Charlie Brooker, the series is comprised of self-contained episodes which each have a different cast, story and a slightly different picture of reality. The series explores 'how we may live' in the very near future, pushing technological themes to an extreme. The result is somewhat comical and nearly always disturbing and thought provoking. 

My personal view on technology's effect on society is a bit more nuanced and much more positive – but Black Mirror paints a picture of what could go wrong, in as many ways as there are episodes.
