·         Resistance to the television: fear of dumbing down of the people
·         Disposable age thanks to a surplus of unnecessary things
·         ‘Big Brother’: digital devices as surveillance tools
·         Stress thanks to constant accessibility
·         Dangers in communication (dangerous mail, viruses, manipulation)

·         Exploring the exhibition
·         Collecting advantages and disadvantages
·         Analysing the background to fear of innovation
