Living in the Surveillance Economy

Setup

From smartphones transmitting our location to ads following us as we browse the web to home appliances and devices watching us in our own homes, we live in an age of ubiquitous surveillance. And our data is not our own. How should big companies be accountable? What are our rights? And what should our rights be? Is monetized data extraction — also known as surveillance capitalism — causing such concentrations of power as to threaten our core values? Rebecca MacKinnon, author of Consent of the Networked, and Anita Allen, an expert on privacy law and philosophy, discuss the thorny issues of connectivity with Julia Angwin, author of Dragnet Nation: A Quest for Privacy, Security and Freedom in a World of Relentless Surveillance.
