About Silicon States

SILICON STATES: THE POWER AND POLITICS OF BIG TECH AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR OUR FUTURE by Lucie Greene(Counterpoint, Nonfiction): Tech writer and Worldwide Director of The Innovation Group J. Walter Thompson addresses the big question on how technology is NOT being regulated (while slowly taking over our government). She interviews tech heavy hitters such as Nick Denton, has received blurbs from tech/entertainment leaders such as Robert Safian (founder ofFast Company) and Dan Lyons (contributing writer on SiliconValley). My favorite chapter addresses women in Silicon Valley who are part of the #metoo movement. Lucie is a rising star in her industry (if you missed it, check out her recent New York Daily News piece on Cambridge Analytica).
