Silicon Values

In Silicon Values, leading campaigner Jillian York looks at how our rights have become increasingly undermined by the major corporations’ desire to harvest our personal data and turn it into profit. She also looks at how governments have used the same technology to monitor citizens and threatened our ability to communicate.

Note: We hoped that the Internet would be a great leveling field. A place where everyone’s voice was heard equally without the continued distortion of corporate and political gatekeepers. On the surface, it still might seem that way, but underneath, as Jillian C. York shows, it’s anything but. For fans of The Social Dilemma and The Age of Surveillance Capitalism. -Aaron Piccirillo
