This class will provide students with a basic understanding of the major “big tech” companies like Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Each class will start with a 30-40 minute company overview followed by 20-30 minutes of discussion. The hope is, at a minimum, we all will better understand how big these companies are, how powerful they are, how they operate and how they use their customers data. These companies play such a big role in society, many of us (instructor included) probably don’t really understand how much they influence our everyday lives.
