Logic Issue 4: SCALE Launch (NYC Edition)!

Join us on Wednesday, April 25th at 7pm to celebrate the release of our new issue, SCALE, hosted by our friends at the Ace Hotel in New York.

What new kinds of scale does technology enable and demand? How do we govern, mobilize, moderate, democratize at scale?

We'll converse, mingle, drink, and hear from the following contributors:

  • K. Sabeel Rahman on the new tech monopolies and how to tame them
  • Nina Sparling on "open-source agriculture"
  • Ross Perlin on what happens when small languages collide with smartphones and the internet
  • Moira Weigel on #MeToo, the death of print media, and the structure of the internet
  • Ben Tarnoff on how data got "big" and how we might democratize it

To attend, please RSVP at the Ace Hotel site.

And if you're not too shook by Cambridge Analytica, here's the Facebook event.

Technology and Inequality: The New Social Contract (Boston)

What do we want our new digital social contract to look like? Politically, how can we get there?

To discuss these questions, and to celebrate the release of Logic's fourth issue, SCALE, we invite you to join a panel discussion on Friday, May 4th at 7pm at the Humanist Hub in Cambridge with:

  • Tressie McMillan Cottom, an assistant professor of sociology at Virginia Commonwealth University and the author of Lower Ed: The Trouble Rise of For-Profit Colleges in the New Economy.
  • Tarleton Gillespie, principal researcher at Microsoft Research New England and an affiliated associate professor in the Departments of Communication and Information Science at Cornell.
  • Ben Tarnoff, columnist at The Guardian and a founding editor of Logic.

Moderated by Moira Weigel, postdoctoral fellow at Harvard and a founding editor of Logic.

Co-hosted by our friends at the Humanist Hub and Open Source with Christopher Lydon.

Tech Against Trump is a book chronicling the rising tide of anti-Trump resistance by technologists and tech workers. How are people using technology to disrupt Trumpism?

Issue 1: Intelligence (Available now)

Our very first issue. Tales have been told far and wide of its impressive hand-feel. “I can’t stop touching it,” says one early reviewer. The content is even better.

We're thrilled to be publishing a range of talented folks on a variety of subjects—from DIY brain scanners to the feminization of front-end coding; electronic medical records and the doctors that hate them to border patrol robots; and more.
