Cyberspace Didnt Stay Free
In this episode April Glaser is joined once again by guest co-host Meredith Broussard, a data journalism professor at NYU and author of Artificial Unintelligence: How Computers Misunderstand the World. First, historian Mar Hicks joins the show to talk about the tech industryâ€™s long-time aversion to organized labor and how thatâ€™s clashing with recent worker actions at major tech companies like Google and Uber. Then Alexis Madrigal joins the hosts to talk about his recent piece in the Atlantic called â€œThe End of Cyberspaceâ€ where he argues that the 90s dream of an unregulated internet is starting to fade. According to Madrigal, itâ€™s time to create a new alluring vision for what cyberspace should be.
