NLC4 and Progressive Policy Institute Host Discussion on Silicon Valley’s Political Power 


If you’re in the Washington, D.C. area, we hope you were able to join PPI and NLC4 as we hosted Greg Ferenstein, the author of The Age of Optimists: A Quantitative Glimpse of How Silicon Valley Will Transform Political Power and Everyday Life. 

Ferenstein shows that tech founders both love government and often see its regulations as an impediment to innovation. We will have a thoughtful discussion on this new ideology emerging from Silicon Valley and how it will impact our future.
