Tech and the Truth with Kara Swisher

Technology and the people behind it are having deep impacts on our democracy. Few people understand that better than legendary tech journalist Kara Swisher.

While tech titans bragged they would “move fast and break things,” she was moving faster and breaking news. Covering the explosion of the digital sector in the early 1990s, she developed a long track record of digging up and reporting the truth of this new world order.

Her newest work is Burn Book; a Tech Love Story. It’s part memoir, part history and, most of all, a necessary recounting of tech’s power players and influence. She’ll speak at the Forum about tech’s complex history of striving, success, and failure. She’ll explain how the commercial internet came to be at the center of global power, creating a clear and present danger to humanity.
