What is the message behind the documentary Secrets of Silicon Valley?
This one-hour documentary takes on a couple of different issues. One is the social impact of high-tech lifestyles, and how our high-tech lives affect the world at large, our health, and the communities in which we live.
What we see as the documentary plays out is also how our economic standing impacts our place in society and how we’re perceived.
While technology makes business more easily globalized, <strong>there’s another side to it. It’s not all about the flexibility and customization that technology gives us (we can pick our best Internet plans, television packages and even have advertising catered to us online).
What will it say to you?
We don’t want to give away too much of the plot, but Secrets of Silicon Valley gives a glimpse of the temporary assembly line worker, an existence that includes low pay and no degree of job security, while closeby, on the upper end of Silicon Valley, rich businessmen and plugged in media outlets exist without such insecurities and hardships.
We suggest you watch the documentary with friends or family, then discuss what it meant to you. There are a few good reviews online of this documentary, and you can find the best internet provider deals.
