Launch + Learn is a screening and discussion series led by students, for students.* We will watch a short video or two then have an informal conversation on takeaways and lessons learned. Feel free to bring your lunch; we'll supply popcorn!
This week: Media theorist Douglas Rushkoff argues that humans are no longer valued for our creativity -- but for our data. In this world dominated by digital technology, do you agree? Together we will watch a TED talk where Rushkoff urges us to stop using technology to optimize people for the market, and start using it to build a future centered on values of connection, creativity and respect.
A lot to chew on? Join us for discussion and debate!
*This series is led by the LaunchPad's team of student fellows.
