If we only knew How to fix the future...this is the name of his newly published book (2018) focusing on his lifelong field of interest – the internet. Andrew Keen, a native of Great Britain living in the US, is one of the world’s best known critics and commentators on the digital revolution, trying to lay the foundations for real solutions to the issues of surveillance capitalism, big data monopolies, fake news, digital addiction and other threats of the digital age we live in.
„The real opportunity today is with innovation. That’s the real danger of Google and Facebook – innovators who think beyond them.“ Back in the 90’s he was already running an internet-based business when he founded a startup called Audio Café and AfterTV. Andrew is the founder and executive director of the Silicon Valley innovation salon FutureCast, a popular public speaker, and both a host and guest of discussions, talk shows and conferences around the world. He is the host of Keen On and a popular TechCrunch chat show. Andrew has written four books - Cult of the Amateur, Digital Vertigo, the international bestseller The Internet Is Not The Answer that has been translated into 17 languages, and his latest How To Fix The Future.
