Internet entrepreneur and author Andrew Keen founded Audiocafe.com in 1995, and is currently the executive director of the Silicon Valley salon FutureCast, a Senior Fellow at CALinnovates, the host of the chat show Keen On Techonomy, and a columnist for CNN.

His third book is The Internet is Not the Answer (Atlantic Books) and he argues that the internet has had a disastrous effect on our lives, suggesting there are three areas of concern: inequality (economic and cultural), unemployment and the surveillance economy.

He puts his views in this feisty discussion with Kim Hill.
