I was incredibly happy to appear on the MMT Podcast again this week, talking about economics, science fiction, interoperability, tech workers and tech ethics, and my new novel ATTACK SURFACE, which comes out in the UK tomorrow (Oct 13 US/Canada):
We also delved into my new nonfiction book, HOW TO DESTROY SURVEILLANCE CAPITALISM, and how it looks at the problem of misinformation, and how that same point of view is weaponized by Masha, the protagonist and antihero of Attack Surface.
It’s no coincidence that both of these books came out at the same time, as they both pursue the same questions from different angles:
- What does technology do?
- Who does it do it TO and who does it do it FOR?
How can we change how technology works?
- Why do people make tools of oppression, and what will it take to make them stop?
