TECH FEELS YOUR PAIN

It’s possible Silicon Valley may be developing a social conscience

DISRUPTIVE

NOW WE KNOW why technologists are racing to develop virtual reality: so they could live there if Donald Trump gets elected president.

But here’s a better idea: The tech industry should take ownership of the role it played in creating Trumpism. If the industry did a better job helping society deal with all the disruption that technology throws at it, Trump might have fewer fans than the Tennessee Titans.

About Newsweek International

TRUMP'S MISSING EMAILS Over the course of decades, Donald Trump’s companies have systematically destroyed or hidden thousands of emails, digital records and paper documents demanded in official proceedings, often in defiance of court orders. These tactics, exposed by a Newsweek review of thousands of pages of court lings, judicial orders and a davits from an array of court cases, have enraged judges, prosecutors, opposing lawyers and the many ordinary citizens entangled in litigation with Trump. In each instance, Trump and entities he controlled also erected numerous hurdles that made lawsuits drag on for years, forcing courtroom opponents to spend huge sums of money in legal fees as they struggled sometimes in vain to obtain records.
