ZUCKERBERG 2020? - A possible future for politics
Fri 21 April 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
In the past months, speculation over whether Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg will run for president has intensified. After the Trump victory, nothing of this sort seems impossible. Would such a shift establish a democratic tech utopia - or would it marginalise dissent in a way unseen even in 20th century dictatorships?
LightClock presents: ZUCKERBERG 2020?
Join us for our panel debate and our provocative games over drinks.
Panelists include Anoosh Chakelian (Senior Writer; New Statesman), Brandon Jackson (creative technologist; Kano) and Tom Paskhalis (statistics of political social media; London School of Economics).
Game master: Sarah Stein Lubrano (The School of Life)
We will offer a welcome bar of wine, beer and soft drinks for free at the venue (first come, first served).
This event is hosted at Newspeak House, the community space for political technologists.
