Technology has afforded us extraordinary connectivity to one another, local and global communities, as well as ideas across time and space. The mobile phone is an essential part of our daily lives—a device 3.7 billion of us use to access information, entertainment, social media, banking, games, music, and much more. As a result, each of us has a digital footprint that companies and industries commoditize and capitalize on. In this candid conversation, Roger McNamee and Shoshana Zuboff provide insights into the processes and practices they deem dangerous to our democracy, harmful to our mental health, destructive to our global political and economic order, designed to bypass our awareness, and engineered to keep us ignorant.
