Red Mirror is a critically minded study group on technology and society. In this event we engage with the work of Nick Briz, a communications scholar from the US. We're going to watch some short clips where, for example Briz criticises Facebook https://youtu.be/JEeR9jUsiyo and discuss these.
You don't need to prepare beforehand or have been a part of Red Mirror before.
The topic of the Internet in relation to enormous capitalist firms such as Facebook and Apple are central to understanding the world today. These companies shape how we interact with each other, from the discussion on Fake News to everyday interaction in life. The Internet should be a common good, but is rather a market to make money and the effects of this are enormous. That's why piracy is resistance, and this is why this event is so important.
