A lot has changed in 60 years, with incredible tech advancements in a connected world. Andrew Keen asks us to grapple with societal effects of that connectivity. In The Internet is Not the Answer, Keen argues that the internet has compounded and aggravated existing cultural, social, and economic inequalities.
Called the “Christopher Hitchens of the internet,” Keen has written a packed and broad-ranging treatise of how basic human virtues are thrown aside in favor of a digital, winner-takes-all economy. This is bound to be provocative, particularly here in Silicon Valley, so come join the conversation on Wednesday, May 20 at 7:30pm – tickets available HERE.
Keen is in good company with Nicholas Carr, Evgeny Morozov, and Jaron Lanier. His speaking style is kinetic and thought-provoking as you can see in the trailer for his book HERE.
