Reclaiming the Future in Tech, Media and Communities

A central issue in the 21st century is the extraordinary role of big technology companies in global and local communities, media and journalism, the economy and the daily lives of adults and children.

Yet we are still at the early stages of understanding the full impact of changes over the past decade related to core concerns about privacy, health, security, ethics, regulation, accountability, monopolies, taxes and much more.

This talk will examine how similar challenges may have been addressed in past technology waves and what may be needed – in fairly short time – to address today’s major concerns. Leaders and experts in the arts and humanities can play an important role in these efforts to both protect and improve communities for the future.
