The Sociology of the Future

Sociology — the workings of society. What will the sociology of the future look like? A glimpse:

1. More video games and virtual reality

Half Life Alyx— a virtual-reality first experience.

Virtual reality is already here (Oculus and VIVE + SteamVR). Even look at the new Half-Life virtual reality Alyx game!

2. Why does sociology matter?

Google and data is our new god. “Data deification” seems like an apt phrase here. We all now bow down to the almighty algorithms and “big data” which seems to promise us salvation, faith, direction and hope into the future.
