The Promise (and Danger) of Big Tech

August 24, 2021

Trampled by Unicorns explores how technology has advanced humanity’s most noble pursuits, while grappling with the origins of the industry’s destructive empathy deficit. Author and leading technology executive Maëlle Gavet argues that the causes and consequences of Big Tech’s failures originate from four main sources: the Valley’s cultural insularity, the hyper-growth business model, the sector’s stunning lack of diversity, and a dangerous self-sustaining ecosystem.
