How Facebook, Google, and Amazon Cornered Culture and Undermined Democracy
Original Air Date: October 23, 2017
Bennet Kelley speaks with Jonathan Taplin, one of the authors appearing at The Miami Book Fair. Taplin is the Director Emeritus of the USC Annenberg Innovation Lab, and a former tour manager for Bob Dylan and The Band, as well as a film producer for Martin Scorsese. An expert in digital media entertainment, Taplin is a member of the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and sits on the California Broadband Taskforce and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti's Council on Technology and Innovation. His new book, Move Fast and Break Things: How Facebook, Google, and Amazon Cornered Culture and Undermined Democracy is a stinging polemic that traces the destructive monopolization of the Internet and proposes a new future for musicians, journalists, authors and filmmakers in the digital age.
