RESET, now on the Sundance Channel
Americans spend an average of 60 hours a month online. For a lot people, especially younger generations, it’s a lot more. Of course, using the Internet is just one thing we do with our computers. As more and more jobs become computer-based, we spend more face time with a machine than we do with actual people. Speaking as a blogger, I shudder to admit that I easily spend at least 120 hours a month with my laptop.
Now, finally, there’s a show all about our relationships with our computers and their relationship with us. Produced by Brooklyn-based m ss ng p eces, RESET is “an effort to introduce computers to the human experience,” a show that computers can watch to teach them what it’s like to be human. Can such a thing be done? To find out, tune into RESET and watch sneak peek episodes about the series.
