    Is technology a feminist issue? A gender issue? A political issue? Because it’s beginning to feel like it. What started as beanbag-based geek chic seems to have morphed into something looking a little bit more like an empire.

    As part of our big questions series, we’ve invited three speakers to our October Salon at The Hospital Club to help us understand who technology serves and how.

    Hear Margaret Heffernan (entrepreneur, ex-Silicon Valley CEO and author of Wilful Blindness - one of the FT’s books of the decade) give us her take on the use of gender in the business place and its use in creating workplaces that get the best out of us - you know - the human beings.

    Nichi Hodgson - writer, broadcaster, founder of the Ethical Porn Partnership and now a consultant to Europe’s leading dating tech company will give us her unique perspective on our complex attitude to our intimate relationships and technology. From sex to dating, has a generation of life lived online changed the way we behave with each other?

    AI expert Dr Robert E Smith - if you've ever suspected the internet might have been designed as a vehicle to express deeply questionable opinions - it turns out you’re right. Find out why unless you’re a white, male, able-bodied Western European, the internet is deeply suspicious of you and your right to life’s riches.

    Doors open 7pm for a 7:30pm start. 19th October. The Hospital Club. Tickets are £15 and available here. Or why not become a member?
