New book in Italian

A new book on the importance of access to data and information co-authored by Thomas Ramge and professor Mayer-Schönberger has been published in Italian by EGEA, the publishing house of Italian University Bocconi. Titled “Fuori I Dati!”, it is based on “Machtmaschinen” published in German in late 2020, and focuses on the tremendous concentration of informational power in the hands of a few very large digital companies, and how this not only stifles competition but kills innovation and deprives society of our data dividend. The answer isn’t to break up Big Tech, but to force them to let others access their data.
