Charlie Brooker created Black Mirror to warn us about the dangers of the modern world. It’s not a warning about how technology can be something to fear, it’s a warning about us. As Brooker puts it “It’s not a technological problem we have, it’s a human one”. Scary. Black Mirror is an astonishingly good series that makes us think about everything we do, why we do it and at what cost. We constantly hear that to make to create something great, we have to create meaning in our world. With Black Mirror, Brooker does exactly that in each and every episode. The result is a dark, dark world where it’s easy to lose yourself. But how exactly does he do that? The Nerdwriter tries to answer this question with this video and it’s well worth a watch.
