Noam Cohen ’85 Casts A Critical Lens on a Technocratic Future

In The-Know-It-Alls: The Rise of Silicon Valley as a Political Powerhouse and Social Wrecking Ball, Noam Cohen looks at the rise of technology entrepreneurs as an ever-growing, influential class and one that has also become a political force.  He documents the achievements of several of society’s now-notable names, including Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Sergey Brin, and Mark Zuckerberg, and tells of how Stanford University was an important incubator for many of their pioneering efforts.
