Many tech companies pretend that their products contribute to a just and equal society. They offer ‘free’ services in exchange for our data. But what are the economical, political and social consequences of these seemingly beneficial deals? And why do our governments go along with plans coming out of Silicon Valley?

This lecture is presented in collaboration with Hacking Habitat, and part of Residenties in Utrecht.
