Andrew Keen  is one of the world’s best-known and controversial commentators on the digital revolution. He is the author of four books: Cult of the AmateurDigital Vertigointernational hit The Internet Is Not The Answer, and his latest book How To Fix The Future.

“The great challenge of today is arming us with agency, giving us the power to determine our own lives in the face of these massive (digital) companies and of these seemingly inevitable technologies. That’s the great question of the 21st Century: How to be human?”

“California’s liability (auto) insurance premium is more than 5% below what is was in 1989. I’m not talking about inflation-adjusted. I’m talking about if you paid $100 in 1989, you pay $94 now.”
