“Our job isn’t to tell people what to do. We’re presenting a story with a hopefully interesting dilemma that’s exciting…I wouldn’t profess to know the solution.”

On one hand, I applaud Brooker and Jones for using their craft to highlight the unseen consequences of tech without imposing their views on how to tackle them. On the other, I can’t help but wonder if, given their prophetic abilities, does this duo have a responsibility to share their thoughts — and they must have some — on how we can mitigate some of the unintended ramifications of tech, both now and in the future?
