  2. Towards High-Tech Feudalism: How the Digital Economy Enslaves Us - Evgeny Morozov

    «Automatisering, digitalisering og arbeidsplasser i framtidas samfunn» – Hovedkonferanse KÅKÅnomics 2017

    Konferansen byr på anerkjente, internasjonale tenkere innenfor emnet. Sammen med filosofer, politikere og økonomer garanterer vi en faglig sterk dag, i opplysningens ånd. Teknologipessimisten Evgeny Morozov tar over scenen med bud på hvordan den digitale økonomien kan medføre en slags teknologisk føydalisme hvor menneskene blir mer ufrie – med mindre vi gjennomfører automatiseringen av samfunnet på et verdig og skikkelig vis.

    Spørsmål som diskuteres i konferansen: Hva slags utfordringer gir automatiseringen og digitaliseringen oss? Hva slags praktiske endringer av arbeids- og samfunnslivet står vi overfor? Hva slags kompetanse trenger vi i framtida? Hva slags økonomisk politikk trenger vi i framtida?

  3. Technology and Post Capitalism

    On this panel: David Harvey, Paul Mason, Aaron Bastani, Alice Bell and James Meadway. Since the inventions of agriculture and writing, technology has endured an intimate relationship with politics, serving to both disrupt and uphold concentrations of power. But do the technologies of the new century, from computing to synthetic biology, create a new set of possibilities? Are they the bridge to a different kind of society? —-

    The UK is facing an economic crisis, falling living standards, a climate crisis, the rise of the far-right. More than ever, we need a resilient Left. This means we need a strong Left media, capable of thinking honestly about the issues facing us, tackling these issues head-on, as well as reaching out to those who aren’t yet on side. Our wide range of output – from listicles to essays, from punchy videos to in-depth discussions – does exactly that.

    But all this costs money: studio rent, equipment, contributor fees and digital infrastructure. We do a lot with a little, but we can’t do anything with nothing. We won’t charge for content or cash in on sponsorship deals with Pepsi. We don’t have private fortunes, or state backers, or big capital behind us – we just have you.

    Not everyone can afford to give – but if you enjoy our work, and you be…
