Douglas Rushkoff: On Reclaiming Our Humanity on the Internet

Modern digital tools have brought about new conveniences and has enabled many to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have countless ways to connect with each other, but studies show that increasingly, people are more isolated, more depressed and less empathetic.

In this episode of Big Tech, co-hosts David Skok and Taylor Owen speak with Douglas Rushkoff about the internet’s evolution from an emerging technology to the monopolistic system we have today. Rushkoff is a professor of media theory and digital economics at CUNY/Queens and author of Team Human, Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus, and more.
