Ian Bogost, professor in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication, appeared on the Keen On Podcast to discuss change in the tech industry.

Excerpt:

Andrew Keen: What’s really angering people now in Silicon Valley? Is it really just Zuckerberg and Facebook’s unwillingness to tell the truth about social media, or is there something deeper and more profound?

Ian Bogost: Yeah, these are small. These are like papercuts. This is definitely a death by a thousand papercuts situation for many tech workers who are bothered by the way that their industry or their specific organizations are behaving. For them, I don’t think it’s about one thing and it’s certainly not about the latest thing. It’s rather the failure of this promise that the tech industry had offered them, which was that they were going to change the world for the better.
