Andrew Keen interviews:
Fernando Flores‘ life reads like fiction. In his late twenties, the Finance Minister of the Salvador Allende government in Chile. Having been imprisoned by the Pinochet regime, he became a cause celebre in the West and eventually, with the help of Amnesty International, found his way to Stanford University as a research fellow.
At Stanford, Flores worked with Terry Winograd (the same Winograd who supervised Larry Page and Sergey Brin) and came also to collaborate closely with Hubert Dreyfus, the Berkeley philosopher. Today, Flores is a Chilean Senator and an internationally respected technology theorist and critic.
