Weinstein, Stanford professors, all - of the new book, System Error: Where Big Tech Went Wrong and How We Can Reboot (Harper) will all be on hand at ye old Town Hall - 1119 Eighth Avenue - for this live, in-person program.
"System Error is a triumph: an analysis of the critical challenges facing our digital society that is as accessible as it is sophisticated. Best of all, the authors offer actual solutions for a reboot that are both timely and feasible." -Anne-Marie Slaughter.
"It's not about the obvious villains. This wise, nuanced, quietly brilliant book reveals how technology is reshaping our society and our values in ways that are insidious, hidden—sometimes even from their inventors—and far more fascinating. Anyone who believes this reshaping shouldn't be entrusted to private companies needs to read it. Now." -Larissa MacFarquhar.
Presented by Town Hall Science in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company. Town Hall is at 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca).
