Tech & Regulation Seminar: Techlash: Who Makes the Rules in the Digital Gilded Age? Photo

​​This hybrid seminar will be led by Tom Wheeler, former Chair, Federal Communications Commission, and Senior Research Fellow, M-RCBG, who will talk about his new book, Techlash: Who Makes the Rules in the Digital Gilded Age?

In Techlash, Wheeler connects the experiences of the late 19th century’s industrial Gilded Age with its echoes in the 21st century digital Gilded Age. He calls for a new era of public interest oversight that leaves behind industrial era regulatory ideas to embrace a new process of agile, supervised and enforced code setting that protects consumers and competition while encouraging continued innovation.

For in-person attendees:
Lunch will be served, and we will raffle off 5 copies of Mr. Wheeler's book.
