The progress of technology, in our times, has been both exciting and bewildering to witness. Many of us can remember playing video games from a cassette (which normally failed to load altogether) and calling a phone number to find out the time. Now we carry billions of pieces of information in our pockets and can ask a robot to write us a poem. It is a strange landscape, but fast-talking talent AURIE STYLA is the man to navigate it.
Aurie became a tech-lover in early childhood, and his journey through life has been mapped out by gadgets. We retrace that journey with him in this hybrid of standup and cultural history. It dips into the delicious nostalgia of the technology we’ve left behind, takes a look at the astounding tech-wizardry around us today, and asks what might come next.
The forces of tech shape our lives more every day, and none of us fully understand them – but Aurie is closer than most. With this pacy, vital guide from a young black comic voice, we might all feel a bit less lost.
