JONATHAN TAPLIN DISCUSSES HIS RECENT BOOK, "MOVE FAST AND BREAK THINGS: HOW FACEBOOK, GOOGLE AND AMAZON CORNERED CULTURE AND UNDERMINED DEMOCRACY"

Join us for a fascinating evening as Taplin discusses what has been described as a "stinging polemic that traces the destructive monopolization of the internet by Google, Facebook and Amazon and proposes a new future for musicians, journalists, authors and filmmakers in the digital age."

Jonathan Taplin is director emeritus of the Annenberg Innovation Lab at the University of Southern California and was professor at the USC Annenberg School from 2003-2016. He began his entertainment career as tour manager for Bob Dylan and The Band and was producer of numerous films, including The Last Waltz, Mean Streets, and To Die For, as well as 26 hours of television documentaries. Taplin served as vice president of media mergers and acquisitions at Merrill Lynch and was a founder of Intertainer, a pioneer video-on-demand company for cable and broadband Internet markets. Taplin holds two patents for video on demand technologies and has provided consulting services on Broadband technology to the President of Portugal and the Parliament of the Spanish state of Catalonia and the Government of Singapore.

Taplin graduated from Princeton University. He is a member of the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, sits on the International Advisory Board of the Singapore Media Authority, and is a fellow at the Center for Public Diplomacy. He was appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to the California Broadband Task Force in January of 2007 and is a member of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Council on Technology and Innovation.
