Lizzie O'Shea is a lawyer at Maurice Blackburn, writer, broadcaster and socialist activist. She's the author of Future Histories: What Ada Lovelace, Tom Paine and the Paris Commune Can Teach Us About Digital Technology - an examination of radical social movements and theories from history and how they can be applied to technology capitalism. 

Lizzie and I discussed the class action she's working on against Uber's business model, the "datafication of ourselves", how much Facebook and Amazon suck, Australia's awful data encryption laws, what it might mean to break up or nationalise the tech companies and the possibilities of a better world with a better internet.
