Granny nanny or big brother
When starting to read this book I think the most abnormal thing for me was the nanomites that are put into brains to connect each person with the nanomites Granny Nanny which is comparable to the internet which I feel would be super helpful but also super exhausting being able to access all that information all the time I feel like I would never sleep. Even in class I find issues staying off the internet and all the information that you can have through it, to the point where I turn airplane mode on for most classes when I need my laptop for notes or anything. Granny Nanny can track needs and monitoring activity, so I feel like that basically gives no responsibility to the human instead the Granny Nanny takes care of everything. I don’t really understand because human nature is to get jealous and it seems like the granny nanny takes care of all arguments and such so how can humans be able to be humans if all arguments are taken care of and humans needs are also taken care of so how can humans be allowed to be human and experience what it means to be human? Another criticism I have is that in class we talked about how the Granny Nanny could also be compared to Big Brother because it can track everyone. The creators know this and resist getting the nanomites. It sounds like it is invasive as much as it is helpful and as though it really dominates people’s lives, to the point where most people don’t work but some do.
