#CollisionfromHome is making its mark as conversations heat up between tech entrepreneurs and journalists, venture capitalists and activists, all bringing their insights to bear on global challenge and change in 2020. With 130,000 platform-hosted attendee chats sparked by the presentations, Day 2 brought together diverse perspectives on everything from climate to politics in the digital information age—and tech’s role as both a source of controversy and a force for good.
