The future of global communications?
1 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Futurecast:Newborn is one of a series of "futurecasts" - broadcasts from the not-too distant future. They are perhaps most worrying because they neither predict a bright future (such as Star Trek) they suggest that mankind will carry on the same path as we are currently following

  • The network of Global Communications which the internet has grown


into is suffering a series of catastrophic problems - bank records suddenly flowing freely across international borders, company accounts, medical records semi-intelligent software agents are thought to be (in part) responsible, little virus-like creations which move around the network "improving" efficiency ...

However the journalist delivering his (perhaps final) broadcast draws the viewer's attention to a strange feature of interrupted broadcasts ... there is a repeated theme of THE HUMAN FACE being displayed ...
