Giorgio Griziotti was one of the first digital engineers to graduate from Milan’s Politecnico University. His participation in the Autonomous Movement in Italy in the 1970s forced him to gain most of his professional experience in the field of ICT in exile. He has an experience of more than thirty years in large international IT projects and he is today an independent researcher, member of the collective “Effimera”, on the contemporaneous technological mediations and its political, cultural and social implications. He publish essays and articles in different sites and magazines, among others Open Democracy in UK, Alfabeta2 in Italy and Le Monde Diplomatique in France. His most recent essays have appeared in collective anthologies, including Creative Capitalism, Multitudinous Creativity (Lexington Book, 2015) and La Moneta del Comune (Alfabeta2-Derive&Approdi, 2015), Datacrazia, D Editore, 2018.
His book Neurocapitalismo, Mediazioni tecnologiche e linee di fuga (Mimesis 2016), has gained some attention in Italy.
It was also published in Spain in April 2017 (Editorial Melusina, translation by Miguel Alonso Ortega).
