Disconnected

Overview
Do you sometimes wonder, how you will ever keep pace with today’s technology demands? Goods we purchase, services we depend upon, and even connections with our friends, family, and work colleagues have become interwoven with 24/7 connectivity and our addiction grows stronger with each passing day. New innovations require us to rapidly adapt to vocabulary and user experiences that are far from intuitive across every generation. Is civilization leading this torrent of progress, or is it the other way around? DISCONNECTED, is a story of a generation born into connectivity as they journey toward the year 2045. This thought-provoking story and its shocking conclusion may make you think twice about your own dependency.
Description
Our addiction -- our insatiable need for content, connection, and clever gadgetry occupies our immediate attention, but little time is spent thinking about where we are taking it, or better yet, where it is taking us. DISCONNECTED is a thought provoking, and hopefully entertaining, journey with a little earthly self-reflection... The story’s very gifted characters, navigate a society in the not-so-distant future where life revolves and evolves around energy, communications, and most importantly -- connectivity. Politics, work, school, and life's basic necessities become enmeshed in the Internet's successor -- the Plane. Populations around the world are interconnected like a herd of antelope on an annual migration; some are left to the edges, or allowed to stray too far behind. For those that do, the world is none too kind. An ambitious plan to colonize Mars in the year 2045, may be just what is needed to help sort out technology's role in the evolution of human civilization.
