A conversation with Dan Schiller
Dan Schiller was a visitor in September 2015 to our ‘Technology and Democracy’ project in CRASSH. Dan is a leading expert on telecommunications history and was one of the first scholars to place the evolution of the Internet in a wider context of the global telecommunications industry. This hour-long conversation between him and David Runciman and me was recorded on September 28 and covers a wide range of topics, including monopoly power, the role of regulators and the importance of knowing the history of this stuff.
