13 Feb ‘The goal is to automate us’: welcome to the age of surveillance capitalism
И още една книга за четене, ако се вярва на статията – фундаментална. Прочетох малък откъс от нея и даже си я купих в деня на излизането на превода на английски.
Но, за да усетите идеята, едно интервю с автора на The Age of Surveillance Capital, проф. Shoshana Zuboff, предава добре идеите ѝ
“surveillance is the business model of the internet” he was really only hinting at the reality that Zuboff has now illuminated. The combination of state surveillance and its capitalist counterpart means that digital technology is separating the citizens in all societies into two groups: the watchers (invisible, unknown and unaccountable) and the watched. This has profound consequences for democracy because asymmetry of knowledge translates into asymmetries of power. But whereas most democratic societies have at least some degree of oversight of state surveillance, we currently have almost no regulatory oversight of its privatised counterpart. This is intolerable.
