My name is Paris Marx.
I host a weekly podcast called Tech Won’t Save Us that critiques the worldview of Silicon Valley.
I also write Horizons, a weekly newsletter focused on reorganizing society for the working class.
Follow me on Twitter.
My writing deals with tech, media, cities, and the ~future~. These are some of my personal favourites:
I’ve had articles published by NBC News, CBC News, Toronto Star, Euronews, Jacobin Magazine, Tribune Magazine, Flaunt Magazine, In These Times, Citymetric, Passage, OneZero, Salon, Recode, Canadian Dimension, Ricochet, The Wire, The Bold Italic, Matador Network, and BootsnAll Travel.
My work has also been translated by Ada Magazin (German), Jacobin Brasil (Brazilian Portuguese), Jacobin Italia (Italian), Jacobin Magazin (German), Krytyka Polityczna (Polish), and Usbek et Rica (French).
I’ll soon have a Master’s degree in Geography from McGill University, in addition to a Bachelor’s in Political Science and French from Memorial University of Newfoundland.
I’ve spoken at conferences in Canada, France, and the United States. You can watch a video of my presentation at Mobilizing Justice on how tech elites’ visions for the future of transportation serve themselves, not most residents.
I’ve been interviewed by The Rational National, Vox, The Telegraph, Forbes Africa, OZY, Humber News, SaultOnline’s The Chris Oldcorn Show, WNPR’s The Colin McEnroe Show, RT America, CGTN America, and more.
