Penn Humanities Forum – Siva Vaidhyanathan

As part of the Penn Humanities Forum, media scholar and cultural historian Siva Vaidhyanathan gave a talk at the museum tonight titled The Googlization of everything — One Company’s Disruption of culture, Commerce, and Community. It was a great discussion of the effect Google has on our lives, on the information we consume, and on the way we communicate. I’m posting it here because I saw several library staff and regular users of the lab in the audience, so I’m guessing it has a fairly wide appeal among our blog readers. I’ll link to the event page in anticipation of PHF posting footage from the event. The library also has a couple of his books if you’re interested in checking them out.
