Event Description

The economic analyst lays bare big tech’s assault on our data, our livelihoods, and our minds.


Don't Be Evil book coverIn the early days, when Google was a scrappy upstart with a utopian vision of transforming the world for the better through tech, its mantra was “Don’t be evil.” But they and other behemoths of the tech world—including Amazon, Facebook, and Apple—have long since abandoned their founding principles in the name of monetizing both our data and our attention through digital surveillance, privacy breaches, predatory algorithms, and products designed to manipulate our desires. Don’t Be Evil is acclaimed journalist Rana Foroohar’s investigation of the dark turn tech has taken from weaving our social fabric to undoing it.
