From National Security Agency surveillance to Jihadist social media and the Sino-Google Wars, computing technologies have morphed into a global infrastructure that is changing not only how governments govern, but also what government is.

Theorist Benjamin Bratton will speak about this “accidental megastructure” of smart grids, cloud computing, mobile software and smart cities, and its effect on government and governance.

Presented by SFU Woodward’s Cultural Unit, tickets for Benjamin Bratton are $10.
