Techonomy

Techonomy Techonomy is a conference and digital media company that explores the intersection of technology, business and social progress. Techonomy’s name embodies our beliefs and our mission—it combines the words “technology” and “economy” because technology is a central part of the economy in which we operate and the society in which we live.
(2)

We see technology as inextricably entwined with just about every activity that humans undertake, and seek as a company to help the world, and especially business leaders, take advantage of it. Techonomy casts its lens broadly across technology, business and society. We believe that all leaders should, in effect, become technologists. We seek conversation at the highest level about the potential for technology and business to drive social progress. We host conferences and create content to explore the pace of change, and what it means. For more information, please visit http://techonomy.com, or our other social platforms. Or contact us: [email protected]

Mission: Our mission is to help the world continue to rapidly evolve its own conception of what's possible, as technology advances and we steadily realize that more and more gigantic problems of mankind can be effectively addressed. Business is most often the best way to engage these forces, but we work closely with government and social leaders on policy questions as well as with businesses on the opportunities of tech-based innovation.

I Joined Parler So You Didn’t Have To - Techonomy

Intrepid reporter Robin Raskin spent a long weekend in the bowels of Parler, a site that’s been attracting a lot of far right users who claim that they’re tired of Facebook’s and Twitter’s left-leaning bias and quashing of free speech. Here's what she learned: https://hubs.la/H0wyK020

As Facebook and Twitter begin to flag more hate speech and misinformation, new social media hangouts step up to fill the void, for those who don’t like such censorship.

Katica Roy on AI as a Tool for Equality - Techonomy

"Women are the breadwinners in 40% of US households (with children under 18). On average, their pay gap is 66 cents on the dollar. But if you look at Black breadwinner moms, their pay gap is 44 cents on the dollar, and they support the majority of all Black children. That's why intersectionality matters."
In honor of Women's Equality Day, we are excited to highlight Katica Roy's efforts to use AI as a tool for gender equity, detailed in this #TechonomyVirtual session with Worth's Juliet Scott-Croxford. Watch now!

Michigan Sec. of State Jocelyn Benson recently prompted Pres. Trump's Twitter wrath by mailing every voter an application for a mail-in ballot. We are especially excited to have her join our free online event tomorrow (8/13) at 11am ET about the election, tech and security. Also joining us: Colorado Election Director Judd Choate, and cybersecurity expert Jody Westby, who is worried that many American election systems remain hackable. Russian interference, to name a major concern, could take the form either of direct manipulation or disinformation that affected turnout or perception of the results. This will be a fascinating discussion - Hope you will join!

THURSDAY, AUGUST 13TH | 11AM ET Never in memory have the mechanics of a presidential election faced such controversy. Voting by mail is suddenly preferred
