Taming Big Tech

Terrific feature article in today’s Financial Times by Roger McNamee, “a one-time confidant of Mark Zuckerberg turned arch critic.” His comments are an affirmation and wake up call for those like me, skeptics of the too-pervasive “all tech is good tech” attitude. In a nutshell: 1) don’t trust Big Tech to correct itself, 2) IoT and AI will make problems worse if not well-regulated; 3) regulate, regulate, regulate; and 4) govts must pursue antitrust actions. “Fortunately we have more power than we realise, particularly if we act in concert…Let’s get started.” #SorryNoSiri
