Join Sen. Amy Klobuchar, New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman, and Common Sense CEO James Steyer for a conversation around technology companies and their growing impact on our society. Steyer will moderate the event as they examine such topics as the role of technology in shaping public policy, the growth of misinformation, and its implications on exacerbating inequality.
The conversation, presented by Common Sense, the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, and the Carlson Family Foundation, builds on Steyer’s book, Which Side of History?: How Technology Is Reshaping Democracy and Our Lives, published in October 2020 by Common Sense. The book offers a collection of bold essays on how technology affects democracy, society, and our future.
