Speakers

Zucked: How Facebook Has Upended the World We Live In

A conversation between Roger McNamee, an early mentor to Mark Zuckerberg and the author of the new book "Zucked", with Nicholas Thompson, the editor in chief of Wired. They will discuss the history and future of Facebook, and how a company set up to make the world more open and connected is now dealing with criticism that it has undermined American democracy, created social anomie, and abetted genocide. How did Facebook become what it is today? Is it truly fixing its problems now? And where is it going next? Expect a lively conversation between two people who have studied the company deeply and for years.
