TECH WEEK: Author Keith A. Spencer @North

People's History of Silion Valley cover
March 6, 2019 - 6:30pm-7:30pm (ended)

Join us for a talk with author and reporter Keith A. Spencer on his book A People's History of Silicon Valley: How the Tech Industry Exploits Workers, Erodes Privacy and Undermines Democracy.  

The book follows the history of the people exploited, displaced, and made obsolete by the tech industry, from the colonization of the Bay Area to the present day. From the first Macintosh to the rise of social media, A People's History of Silicon Valley peels back the curtain on an industry that brands itself as visionary yet which may be chipping away at the foundations of society, including our democratic institutions.
