Technology Innovation and the Malaise of Democracy

Innovation and Economic Growth

Event Details

Hosted by the Tech Policy Lab

Decades of enthusiasm for digital devices has generated a society largely passive about democratic participation in the shaping of new technologies that undermine personal privacy and concentrate wealth and power in the hands of a scant few. Initiatives in “technology assessment” from earlier times encouraged popular participation and careful reflection upon choices in this realm. Join this conversation with Langdon Winner to explore whether this approach can be revived.
