Keen On… Andrew Keen: On The Social Web’s ‘Creepiness’ And How To Stop It [TCTV]

In this very unique edition of the “Keen On” web video series series typically hosted by Andrew Keen, we had the chance to turn the tables on the self-professed “antichrist of Silicon Valley.”

Keen was interviewed on stage by our own Alexia Tsotsis last week at the TechCrunch Disrupt NYC conference, so I was able to snag him just after that for a conversation about his new book, “Digital Vertigo: How Today’s Online Social Revolution Is Dividing, Diminishing, and Disorienting Us.” Whether you agree or disagree with what he says, a conversation with Andrew Keen is always very interesting — so it was definitely a pleasure to hear from him first-hand about his latest work and his overall message.

Watch the video above to get Keen’s thoughts on why adding a social layer to everything may not be the answer, how people can counteract parts of today’s tech movement without being complete Luddites, and why bringing back a bit more “mystery and secrecy” in this time of over sharing would be good for everyone.

As a small programming note, Keen’s microphone was a bit off during the first few seconds of this interview — so please bear with it, it kicks in eventually.
