IT for Change invites you to the State of Big Tech Dialogue, an online panel discussion to mark the launch of our upcoming report,  State of Big Tech: Dismantling Digital Enclosures on the 21st of November,  from 7:00- 9:00 PM IST / 2:30 to 4:30 PM CET / 8:30 to 10:30 AM EST.

We invite you to come listen to a panel of key voices – including some of the the volume’s contributors – reflect on the report, the state of the contemporary struggle against Big Tech, the stakes around important battle-grounds being formed today, as well as the potential inherent in current forms of resistance and projects for building an alternative digital economy.

Please register here and a personalized zoom link will be emailed to you.

About the State of Big Tech:

Envisioned as an evolving, year-on-year endeavor that will track and unpack the developments in the Big Tech space, our debut edition of the State of Big Tech is a powerful volume of essays that brings together important perspectives on the corporatization of digital technologies from across regions and constituencies, that touch upon themes including data value chains, sectoral deep-dives, regulatory stalemates, the neo-colonial dimension of the digital economy, the state of platform labour, as well modes of resistance and experiments in building progressive models  towards new digital futures.

Complemented with stunning and evocative art work and select expert interviews, the compendium is a critical, inspiring and original contribution that attempts to capture the current phenomenon of digital capitalism.
