Wallace House presents Recode’s Kara Swisher interviewing Alex Stamos live on stage at U-M’s Hill Auditorium, March 18, at 6:30 p.m. This event is co-sponsored by ITS, the Dissonance Event Series, and others.

Huge tech companies have changed the way we live. Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple have built unprecedented reach into our pocketbooks, privacy, individual liberties, and beyond, changing the very fabric of our democracy. Join us for an examination of what we are giving away in exchange for speed and convenience.

Kara Swisher is co-founder and executive editor of Recode and host of the weekly interview podcast “Recode Decode.” She is a regular contributor to The New York Times opinion pages and a Livingston Awards national judge.

Alex Stamos is the former chief security officer at Facebook. He is now director of the Stanford Cyber Policy Center’s Internet Observatory at Stanford University.

This event is free and open to the public. For details, see What Does Big Tech Owe Us?
