Since childhood we’d been promised that the 21st century would bring us dramatic new technologies like flying cars and utopian cities. Instead it bought us the smartphone, social media and online gaming. And as it turns out these technologies began to transform society almost as dramatically as the moon colonies we’d been expecting.

DSKNECTD is a sobering and definitive exploration into digital communication technology, covering subjects ranging from text messaging and social media to online gaming and internet pornography. Absolutely riveting and universally accessible to anyone who has ever used a smartphone, Tweeted, Facebook ‘Liked’ or been irritated by someone doing one of those things while trying to have a conversation with them.

Intelligently crafted from groundbreaking new research and the experiences of ordinary people, DSKNECTD examines how these technologies are profoundly changing the way we interact and experience each other – for the good and for the bad.

Thanks. Really enjoyed this film. I feel a bit old now !! But helped me realize more of my 22 yr old son's experience.

A #NewProgressiveAgenda was created, fostered and breathed into life in the United States in our current polity via social media. The United States is an international laughingstock at times. Mainstream media would not address this issue much. The movie is five stars, but very outdated and could use some Massive Open Online Education sequel ...

On the other hand, I do not need to be addicted to social media and it has been very difficult disengaging ... this despite being a non-gamer who does not like some sites.

This is a timely and necessary documentary and people should really take heed of the content. One thing they perhaps intentionally avoided commenting on was that we are being brainwashed, overtly and covertly, every day through the many and varied types of technology, to ACCEPT more and more of it and to even accept the idea of incorporating it into our physical bodies. This is entirely intentional and with a long term agenda of creating AI controlled society, that can be turned on and off, at the discretion of the controllers.

This technology, in all of its facets, is intentionally shaping the entire framework of what it means to be human in the minds of the very young, so as to have a very programmed, controllable future civilization with the values and mores that will benefit those in control, to the exclusion of family bonds and interpersonal relationships.

Technology and all its applications need to be examined more thoroughly and this documentary is merely a beginning. We need to be cognizant of what it means to control technology and to NOT allow it to control us (which it the future that is "planned" for us by the PTB and those who control them)
