Q & A w/ Yasha Levine
In his important new book “Surveillance Valley”, the investigative journalist Yasha Levine retraces the counter-insurgency history of the internet and associated technologies. The advocates of the cognitivist and computational view of society where always DARPA technocrats and Cold War liberals. The cyber-utopians of the 1980s to today can only exist by repressing this past. I had the opportunity to discuss the core thesis of his book for our current political moment of internet malaise. This interview has been published in German at Springerin and published in English at Eurozine.
