UPDATE [5 April 2012] here’s the video of the event:
I’m interviewing author and researcher Rebecca MacKinnon on Thursday at the RSA at 1pm. Rebecca is the author of Consent of the Networked, a public-facing epic tome outlining the political undercurrents of the current crop of web/tech leaders (Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon). Her book is a fascinating and important read, part of a crop of analyses of the contemporary web space that unpicks the implications of our transactions with US corporations. She achieves her aim without an overdose of techno-utopianism or techno-pessimism.
