Wendy Liu is a software engineer and former startup founder who left the tech industry to pursue a masters degree in inequality from the London School of Economics. She is currently working on a print publication devoted to tech worker organising in Silicon Valley.
Lucid, probing and urgent. Wendy Liu manages to be both optimistic about the emancipatory potential of tech and scathing about the industry that has harnessed it for bleak and self-serving ends. -- Naomi Klein, author of On Fire: The Burning Case for a Green New Deal Astute, accessible, and driven by the author's wealth of personal insight, Abolish Silicon Valley is a riveting read and a compelling contribution to contemporary debates. I devoured it in a single sitting. --Helen Hester, author of Xenofeminism Politically-engaged and rigorously self-reflective, Liu calls not just for the eradication of tech culture as we know it, but for the radical reinvention of innovation, work, and automation in the name of the collective interest. This is an assured debut which deserves to find a wide audience. -- Nick Srnicek, author of Platform Capitalism
