Cory Doctorow – Society in Crisis

This session will provide background and perspective on the sweeping changes to our world, amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic and stresses from Climate Change, increased surveillance, and the control of societies by digital intermediaries.

“This unprecedented crisis is revealing the depth of many of the fracture lines that we have contended over as a society. The only thing worse than having those fractures is doing nothing about them now that we know how grave they are.”
