What would you do if you had access to a time machine? What about specifically a Delorean Time Machine that let you go forward in time to see what the future was like?In this Undeceptions Podcast, Steve McAlpine takes us back to the future to see for ourselves. Where are we going as a culture? Will we be happy when we get there?

In this fifth episode of Delorean Philosophy Steve McAlpine draws our attention to the wider implications of a data hack that’s exposed the personal information of 40% of Australia’s citizens.

The attack on the data vaults of Australian telco Optus seems alarming, but a far greater amount of data is being released daily – willingly – by the digital citizens of the West. It’s already being ‘hacked’ by political parties and corporate giants, and is likely to be sifted to a greater extent in the not-too-distant future.

So what should we be doing if we don’t want to end up living in a state where our information is used to shape and shift our beliefs?
