Windsor Hackforge: Book Club; Infomocracy by Malka Ann Older
June 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
Join us this month for a casual discussion on Malka Ann Older’s 2016 sci-fi thriller, Infomocracy. The Verge says, “It’s an intense and intriguing thriller about how technology and the flow of information can help sway public opinion and policy across the planet.”
It’s been twenty years and two election cycles since Information, a powerful search engine monopoly, pioneered the switch from warring nation-states to global micro-democracy. The corporate coalition party Heritage has won the last two elections. With another election on the horizon, the Supermajority is in tight contention, and everything’s on the line.
