Logic is a new magazine devoted to technology and society. Tonight, its editors and contributors host a panel on Silicon Valley's political aspirations in the age of Trump. Since the election, the tech industry has been flexing its political muscle. How is it adapting to the new landscape? How is it interacting with the new Administration—and how is the new Administration using tech's tools to pursue its agenda? We'll discuss topics ranging from Zuckerberg's semi-presidential tour to the role of data analysis in "vetting" and deportations to social media, hate speech, and fake news. Hosted by Logic founding editor Ben Tarnoff. FREE
