Living in a Cyber-world


This is probably a very important topic at the moment.  There are lots of concerns about artificial intelligence and computer hacking, identity theft etc.

We all spend a lot of our time staring at screens these days, more so probably because of the Covid 19 pandemic. Will this go to an extreme? Will we have to go the same way as the Daleks and the Cybermen? Is the on-line life here to stay?  Or will here be a reaction against all of this?  Use your writing skills to explore this theme. 


There are plenty of ideas for articles: scams, how to work sensibly with AI, what else there is to do apart from looking at screens.

This also lends it itself to interesting poetry. An ode to the cyber world? A ballad, a story of what has happened or might happen there? A eulogy, mourning what is lost because of it? Or what about a Limerick?

In a script could you subtly introduce some sentient AI and all the implications around that?

Surely as well time for a story, novella or novel?
