Siva Vaidhyanathan, The Googlization of Everything (And Why We Should Worry)
Wednesday April 20: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
In his provocative book, The Googlization of Everything, Siva Vaidhyanathan examines both his disenchantment with, and his approval of, changes in the world of our global information ecosystem.
The Googlization of Everything is about us and about how we use Google, it is about the global resistance and concern over Google and the moral consequences of Google's actions and policies.
Siva Vaidhyanathan, Professor of Media Studies and Law at the University of Virginia, is the author of Copyrights and Copywrongs: The Rise of Intellectual Property and How it Threatens Creativity and The Anarchist in the Library: How the Clash between Freedom and Control is Hacking the Real World and Crashing the System.
Mr. Vaidhyanathan will be joined by a guest TBA.
