Rep. Ro Khanna is one of a handful of congress members who represent Silicon Valley. His district stretches from Fremont to Cupertino, and in his new book, “Dignity in a Digital Age,” Khanna argues that to achieve digital equity, tech needs to be less geographically concentrated. The book also addresses multiple legislative proposals to tighten federal regulation of consumer privacy, digital wealth inequality and the cognitive impacts of social media. We’ll talk with Rep. Khanna about the book, his proposed “Internet Bill of Rights,” and how to make tech work for all of us.
