Jaron Lanier: Ten Arguments For Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now

Tuesday 12th June 2018 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

Silicon Valley pioneer, philosopher and author of Who Owns the Future? and You Are Not a Gadget Jaron Lanier takes on the tech giants as he gives you Ten Arguments For Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now.

For Lanier, and many others, social media seems to be making us sadder, angrier and more tribal. Instead of bringing people together it appears to be setting us against each other, and scandals like Cambridge Analytica have exposed something very wrong with many of the services we've come to depend on.

Lanier isn't anti-technology, but he thinks something needs to change. Join the visionary, outspoken digital founding father as he takes the stage to discuss the toxicity at the heart of social media—the behaviour modification techniques and algorithms behind platforms like Facebook, Google and Twitter with London-based urbanist and author of Radical Technologies: The Design of Everyday Life Adam Greenfield.
