About the Jonathan Taplin Interview

I am the Director Emeritus of the USC Annenberg Innovation Lab, and a former tour manager for Bob Dylan and The Band, as well as a film producer for Martin Scorsese. I am an expert in digital media entertainment, a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and I sit on the California Broadband Taskforce and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Council on Technology and Innovation. My new book Move Fast and Break Things: How Facebook, Google, and Amazon Cornered Culture and Undermined Democracy was published this year, and tells the story of how the largest Internet platforms used the music, news, and film industries to build their businesses to scale only to sideline them, and the millions of Americans who work for them.

I enjoyed the questions. I'm signing off now.
