The People vs Tech: Jamie Bartlett on how the internet is killing democracy (and how we can save it)

Wednesday 27th June 2018 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Signing, Chargeable Event

Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media, presenter of acclaimed BBC documentary Secrets of Silicon Valley, and bestselling author of The People Vs Tech Jamie Bartlett breaks down the threat of the technological revolution to modern democracy.

The news today is rife with stories about ‘big tech’, Russian hackers and Facebook’s growing role in politics. More and more frequently what happens online is shaping our society, and this seismic shift has been felt nowhere more than in the influence the online world has over our elections.

For this talk, author of The People Vs Tech and The Dark Net Jamie Bartlett examines the fundamentals of democracy to argue how the brave new digital world and our modern democracy are at loggerheads—and the changes we need to make to get them working alongside one another.
