Margaret O’Mara – The Code: Silicon Valley And The Remaking of America
July 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
O’Mara, formerly a member of the Clinton White House, witnessed the intertwining of private, academic, and federal programs that led to the birth of the internet. But Big Tech nowadays tends to believe in its own mythology of heroic entrepreneurship.
