Abolish Silicon Valley

Door: Wendy Liu

Uit de inleiding:

“This is a book about technology, but it is also a book about capitalism — that is, the downside of capitalism. Rather than treating capitalism as a wondrous force for unleashing innovation, this book focuses on the negative consequences of technological development under capitalism: the harmful tendencies that are magnified, and the alternatives that are lost.

Abolishing Silicon Valley doesn’t mean halting the development of technology. It means devising a new way to develop technology which fulfils technology’s transformative potential. It means liberating technology from the clutches of a mindless system whose primary aim is profit. It means creating a world where technology is developed according to different values, for different goals. In short, it means developing technology outside the logic of capital.”
