The technologically saturated spaces that characterise much of contemporary society can bring about many developments beneficial to individuals and society. In some instances, the ubiquity and malleability of digital technology have the potential to fulfil the ideal of connecting humans via a common platform that can positively influence the way we conduct our transactions and interact with each other. In other spaces, there are technological challenges which do not support inclusion and participation in some activities. Digital innovations offer prospects for achieving financial inclusion, improving health, giving voice and enhancing well-being to those who were previously left out of opportunities. However, the very same technology that can make our lives more enjoyable can result simultaneously in an object of obsession that weakens our minds, an enslavement tool that deskills workers and a surveillance device that curtails our freedom.
