Roger McNamee - Zucked: The Education of an Unlikely Activist

Upcoming Event
Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

As a major Silicon Valley investor for some thirty-five years, McNamee has co-founded successful firms in venture, crossover, and private equity. He was an early supporter of Facebook and a devoted mentor of Mark Zuckerberg—yet now he’s doing everything in his power to stop the social media behemoth. His book chronicles his gradual realization that not only is Facebook damaging to privacy and a threat to democracy, but the company is unwilling to see its role in abusing users’ data and enabling election interference as anything more than a public relations problem. Told by an insider, McNamee’s story is an eye-opening look at the nexus of Big Data, big business, and politics, as well as a proposal for change.
