Event description

Description

Big Tech is broken. Suddenly, a wide range of journalists and politicians agree that something has gone horribly wrong with the internet. How can the Left seize this opportunity to advance a radical vision for digital democracy?

To discuss this question, and to celebrate the release of Logic's third issue, JUSTICE, we invite you to join a panel discussion with:

Cathy O'Neil—mathematician, data scientist, and author of Weapons of Math Destruction

Trebor Scholz—scholar, activist, and leading proponent of "platform cooperativism"

Astra Taylor—filmmaker, writer, and author of The People's Platform

Evan Malmgren—writer, author of an article in Logic's new issue on municipal broadband

Moira Weigel—postdoctoral fellow at Harvard, cofounder of Logic, and author of a recent Guardian Long Read on tech worker organizing

Moderated by Ben Tarnoff. Co-sponsored by NYC-DSA Tech Action.

Accessibility info: The venue is accessible by elevator. Please let us know if we can provide any further information.
