From TED Vancouver, 2015
Monica Lewinsky, now that is a name I haven’t heard in a long, long time. I didn’t have an opinion on the matter back then and I certainly couldn’t care less now, but here she gives an interesting talk regarding social issues, nonetheless.
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.
