Even as they remake the physical world, both technology and capitalism take shape in the imagination: dreaming up new needs and new markets that will soon be filled with technological innovation and economic activity. Today, this imaginative space at the intersection of tech and capitalism conjures libertarian dreams and fascist nightmares. Facebook dreams of networking the world, turning citizens into consumers; capital now chases the next Silicon Valley start-up, while failing to invest in workers. The consequences of these imagining are all too real, and all too devastating. A joint collaboration between Public Knowledge and Public Books, the Redirect investigates what needs to be invented to redirect tech's partnership with capitalism towards an alternative, necessary future. Participants include Finn Brunton, Kim Stanley Robinson, Xiaowei Wang, Andrea Steves, and Caitlin Zaloom.
