Feudalism & Big Brother

When talking about the Walled Garden, Fuedal Heirarchy and Serfs, one thing which really stuck out to me was the idea that large media platforms such as Google, Amazon, and Netflix have almost total control of the content we consume.

Not only do these mediums (including Facebook and Apple too) control the content we see, but they monitor everything we do, for the most part monetising our data too. My remediation this week is based off the idea that these platforms are constantly watching us. They monitor the content we consume, feed us the content they think we want to see, and sell or use our data for profits. These concepts are things we often see in dystopian books and films, which is actually where I got the remediation idea from; the slogan ‘Big Brother is watching you’ from George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.
