Produced by: Kate Bunster and Francesca Caccavale.

Being Digital students Patrick Angehr, Annie March and Russell Hartman analyze the impact of technology in modern society through Richard Brautigan’s poem “All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace.”

Nah, I don’t think so.
Definitely not! Humans will not succumb to the allure of technology.
