The Cooler Lumpur Festival — Some Notes from the Digital Democracy
August 19, 2017 @ 13:30 - 14:30
Our whole lives are essentially governed by five tech giants: Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, and Apple. This is a dependency that will only grow. These are digital tentacles that are set to become, with each and every passing day, more pervasive in our everyday. In many ways, this modern capitalist construct runs in contrary to our notions of freedom and self-governance. This panel will take a look at the impact that our casual dalliances with technology will have on our fragile notion of democracy.
Speakers: Jeff Stein, Eva Horn, Matt Armitage
Moderator: Melisa Idris
