Franklin Foer with Kim McKimmie

Franklin Foer is a national correspondent for the Atlantic and a fellow at the New America Foundation. He is the author of How Soccer Explains the World, which has been translated into twenty-seven languages, and is a winner of a National Jewish Book Award. For seven years, he edited the New Republic magazine.

He graduated from Columbia University in 1996 and lives in Washington, D.C.

He is the oldest of three sons born to Albert and Esther Foer. (What AMAZING people and parents!) His brothers are also writers, Jonathan Safran Foer (bestselling novelist) and Joshua Foer (USA Memory Champion’s book, Moonwalking with Einstein.) Both have been ILD “Celebrities of the Month.” What a brilliant family - and Franklin is truly BRILLIANT.

In his book, World Without Mind /The Existential Threat of Big Tech, Franklin Foer opens our eyes to examining the future of humanity.

This is an important and urgent book explaining how the corporate ambitions of Facebook, Google, Amazon and Apple trample our values of intellectual property and privacy. Moreover, these monopolists want access to every facet of our identities and influence over every corner of our decision making.

“Over the past few decades there has been a revolution in terms of who controls knowledge and information. This rapid change has imperiled the way we think. Without pausing to consider the cost, the world has rushed to embrace the products and services of four titanic corporations. We shop with Amazon; socialize on Facebook; turn to Apple for entertainment; and rely on Google for information. These firms sell their efficiency and purport to make the world a better place, but what they have done instead is to enable an intoxicating level of daily convenience. As these companies have expanded, marketing themselves as champions of individuality and pluralism, their algorithms have pressed us into conformity and laid waste to privacy. They have produced an unstable and narrow culture of misinformation, and put us on a path to a world without private contemplation, autonomous thought, or solitary introspection—a world without mind.”
