Mill Valley Rotary President Kent Campbell’s presentation is entitled "Engineering Influence Online: The War Beyond Your Browser."  Kent will discuss how online opinion can be quietly manipulated by leveraging human nature, the realities of online commerce, and technology. In an age when people make decisions based on what they learned on the internet from strangers, various interests alter public opinion by finding traction in negativity bias, tribalism, fear, lust, self-interest, or by simply alleviating boredom. This is possible because the structure of the modern internet is perfectly suited for mass engineering of opinion.

Kent is the Chief Strategist for Reputation X, an online reputation management firm based in Sausalito. His company's clients include businesses, politicians, celebrities, executives, and others who are often perfectly innocent and mostly just misunderstood.

How did all these happen? This talk reveals China’s large scale forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, and provides the history of the investigation: how it began, caught the public attention, and has now become a prime focus internationally.

With the strong bi-partisan support, U.S. Congress unanimously passed resolution H.R. 343 in June 2016, expressing serious concerns about the on-going large scale forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience in China. European Congress passed a resolution in Dec. 2013, urging the Chinese government to stop this brutal practice. The governments of Israel, Spain, and Taiwan have made policies to prevent their citizens from going to China to receive organ transplants.
