Fearing Facebook Et Al: "World Without Mind"
Franklin Foer DOES have a Facebook page, but he hasn't updated it in nearly a year. Which should come as no surprise once you hear his issues with Facebook, Apple, Amazon, and Google.
Foer, the former editor of the New Republic, bashes all four as "Big Tech," and accuses them of damaging our culture and economy, in his book World Without Mind: The Existential Threat of Big Tech.
Whether or not you agree that Big Tech forces conformity and turns our privacy into a commodity, the book will make you think hard about some modern digital conveniences that we quickly took for granted. Franklin Foer visits the exchange to present his argument.
