Zuckerberg’s tech challenge pale and male, say critics

Mark Zuckerberg has been criticised for speaking to eight men and one woman in his quest to discuss "The future of technology in society" - which he set as his personal challenge for 2019. Mr Zuckerberg had said he would talk to "Leaders, experts, and people in our community from different fields". In a Facebook post announcing the challenge, written in January 2019, Mr Zuckerberg said he intended to explore "The opportunities, the challenges, the hopes, and the anxieties" presented by tech in society. The eight men with whom Mr Zuckerberg was filmed in conversation were Harvard law professors Jonathan Zittrain and Noah Feldman, Mathias Dopfner, CEO of publisher Axel Springer, Dr Joe DeRisi and Dr Steve Quake who run the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, economist Tyler Cowen, Patrick Collison, CEO of payment platform Stripe and historian Yuval Noah Harari. Mr Zuckerberg famously sets himself a challenge every year.
