#3 in Centre for Free Expression at Ryerson Series: Taming Big Tech: Exploring the Alternatives. While Big Tech enterprises offer many obvious benefits, there is growing public awareness they present a variety of societal threats. It is much less clear how to tame Big Tech and what the alternatives might be. Panel discussion by experts who issued the recent Defund Big Tech, Refund Community statement and will discuss how their own community-oriented activism helps demonstrate that another tech is possible. June 10 at 4 pm. Free.
