AMÉLIE ARA RÉDACTRICE EN CHEF
Are the gîants o Sîlîcon Valley growîng up? With more than 6 000 high tech companies and a turnover of around 23 billion dollars, Silicon Valley is the ultimate symbol of American pros-perity. Names like Google and Twitter began as small start-ups before becoming the multina-tional businesses everyone knows.
However, take a closer look at the idyllic picture and in reality it is a bit tarnished. This supposed eldorado is responsible for the disappearance of an out-priced middle class, and a completely saturated real estate market in San Francisco. The Cambridge Analytica scandal, headlining in the international press for months, has forced Facebook to rethink its confidentiality policy. Facebook and Twitter went from offering a way to connect people worldwide and liberate the oppressed to now being seen as a “danger to democracy”.
Add to this a revolt within Silicon Valley where some employees of the tech giants have devel-oped a conscience, well before its leaders, with new groups such asTech ActionorThe Center for Humane Technology, pushing for the development of more ethical products and fighting against the abusive uses of technology. How will the Silicon Valley giants recover from this fall and re-establish their reputation? We take a look at these issues in this month’s edition.
