When I went to High school around 1970 we had to read a book about a futuristic society where people no longer worked and lived in private small rooms, never venturing out. They were entertained by video screens, food arrived when they were hungry, they slept and did everything in their room. There only communications with others was with their video screens. One day the giant controlling computer which gave them everything they needed starts to fail and the people are forced to leave their rooms and see real people who are also emerging from their rooms for the first time.
It sounds scarily like the lives of some people already living and likely the lives many will be leading in the coming years.
Does anyone remember the name and author of the book.
