Jaron Lanier talked about his book, Who Owns the Future, in which he argues that the rise of digital networks contributed to our economic recession and weakened our middle class. He said that while many millions of people contribute to and create value for the internet, largely for free, the technology companies that own the central computers are the ones making all the money from it. In his book, he argues that a more equitable sharing of the wealth, based on user contributions, would improve the middle class and our economy. Mr. Lanier spoke at Kepler’s Books in Menlo Park, California. close

    C-SPAN.org offers links to books featured on the C-SPAN networks to make it simpler for viewers to purchase them. C-SPAN has agreements with retailers that share a small percentage of your purchase price with our network. For example, as an Amazon Associate, C-SPAN earns money from your qualifying purchases. However, C-SPAN only receives this revenue if your book purchase is made using the links on this page.

    Any revenue realized from this program goes into a general account to help fund C-SPAN operations.

    Please note that questions regarding fulfillment, customer service, privacy policies, or issues relating to your book orders should be directed to the Webmaster or administrator of the specific bookseller's site and are their sole responsibility.
