We’re coming at you live from TNW2019 on day one where author James Bridle is about to take to the main stage to talk about the topics in his latest book, the New Dark Age.
Instead of a Utopian future driven by technology, we seem to be entering a new dark age characterized by unforeseen events. The ideal of distributing more information ever more widely has not led us to greater understanding, but instead seems to be fostering social divisions, distrust, conspiracy theories, and post-factual politics.
Tune in to hear Bridle’s take on how technology is leading us not into light but into a New Dark Age.
