Keith Spencer discusses his new book A People's History of Silicon Valley.
About A People's History of Silicon Valley
A PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF SILICON VALLEY follows the history of the people exploited, displaced, and made obsolete by the tech industry, from the colonization of the Bay Area to the present day. From the first Macintosh to the rise of social media, A PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF SILICON VALLEY peels back the curtain on an industry that brands itself as visionary yet which may be chipping away at the foundations of society, including our democratic institutions.
Regardless of where you live or work, Silicon Valley undoubtedly touches your life; indeed, the tech industry's ubiquitous gadgets promise us more efficiency, convenience and fun. Yet despite Silicon Valley's utopian promise, more and more of us find ourselves addicted to our smartphones, made insecure by social media, and alarmed at how tech companies profit off our personal data.
