Working Lunch - author & sometime digital doomsayer Jamie Bartlett, optimist & digital creative Lars Malmqvist and book loving cynic Joe Tibbetts on how digital is killing democracy (or not)
On the back cover of Jamie Bartlett's new book it says "at some point within the next generation....either tech will destroy democracy and the social order as we know it or politics will stamp its control over the digital revolution." Bartlett thinks that technology is winning the war but he has a few suggestions on what we might do (must do!) to turn things around before it's too late. Malmqvist, Bartlett and Tibbetts get stuck in. This is compulsory viewing for anyone who cares about democracy but thinks that a voice activated digital personal assistant might be a cute birthday present.
There can be no smart places without smart leaders.
