    The old gods are dying. Giant corporations collapse overnight. Newspapers are being swallowed. Stock prices plummet with a tweet. Governments are losing control. The old familiarities are tumbling down and a strange new social order is rising in their place. More crime now happens online than offline. Facebook has grown bigger than any state, bots battle elections, technologists have reinvented democracy and information wars are breaking out around us. Algorithms shape our lives in more ways than we can imagine. What is going on? What are the new centres of control today?

    On 5th September, Carl Miller will be at Salon London to discuss his pioneering research into the changing nature of power in the digital age. Are we more powerful as individuals than ever before? Or more controlled?

    Doors open at 7pm. The Hospital Club, Covent Garden.

    Tickets are £10, or why not become a member?
