Abstract: 
This two-session convergence is part of the Technology and Revolution convergences project taken place world-wide. All Left Forum participants are invited to share their thinking with each other on the role of technology in the current crisis of capitalism and its role in the revolutionary struggle to emerge with a much better world. This is an informal conversation over three hours which might yield a short statement for inclusion on the project's website. But the main thing is that it will give participants the rare opportunity to just sit and talk about the future without any pressure. Information about the convergence project is at the Technology and Revolution website: https://techandrev.org/ The Discussion guide is at: https://techandrev.org/files/discussion-guide.pdf
