– We are the generation who walks, in your most, with screens in the hands and some, with chips on the bodies, in constant interaction with the digital apparatus, home, on the streets, in the cities, at work and in leisure environments. We, We communicate today largely via messages captured and sent by electronic means, We are increasingly submerged in electrified magnetic fields and virtual realities. We are all natural and digital agents and to some extent and potential ' Bullies '-explains digital Vergara.
