Elizabeth Dwoskin – Online Privacy and What We’ve Learned About Tech Giants
Elizabeth Dwoskin, the Washington Post’s Silicon Valley correspondent, is that paper’s eyes and ears in the world of tech. For the past six years, she has covered the rise of data-hungry technology companies, online conspiracies, and Russian meddling on social media. She was part of the team that broke over a dozen stories on Russian operatives’ use of Facebook, Twitter, and Google to influence the 2016 presidential election. She’ll shine a light on our growing awareness of the dark side of Silicon Valley, and how that awareness is reshaping public policy, our understanding of democracy, and the way tech is used and built.
