Big Tech is broken. Suddenly, a wide range of journalists and politicians agree that something has gone horribly wrong with the internet. How can the Left seize this opportunity to advance a radical vision for digital democracy?

* Cathy O'Neil — mathematician, data scientist, and author of Weapons of Math Destruction.

* Trebor Scholz — scholar, activist, and leading proponent of "platform cooperativism".
