This summer, the Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship (BII+E) celebrates our third anniversary. To mark the occasion, we’re thrilled to present Nicholas Thompson, Editor-in-Chief of WIRED Magazine, to share his views on the trade-offs of an increasingly innovation-driven economy. Join us for an evening of choose your own adventures during this special edition of our ongoing series, BII+E Talks.

As the editor-in-chief of WIRED magazine—one of the most prestigious positions in the world of technology—Nicholas Thompson is staking out a bold, optimistic vision for covering, and responding to, the changing realm of digital culture. From artificial intelligence to entertainment, privacy to social media, ethics to war, Thompson leads the news cycle—and in talks, he champions the ways tech can enhance our lives, both as a quick-witted, brilliant keynote speaker and as a charming, provocative host.
