There’s no doubt that smart devices, social networks, location services, and their ilk have made 21st-century life incredibly efficient and hyper-optimized. But as Harvard Business School emerita and scholar Shoshana Zuboff writes in 2019 bestseller and acclaimed The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power, having access to these services comes with a price. As our individual choices become not only predicted, but controlled, we are opting to concede our privacy in exchange for increased connection and convenience. Optimistic but realistic, Zuboff shows us exactly how allowing surveillance capitalism to flourish is sapping the strength of democracy and freedom.  

 


*The North Shore Forum was established by NSCI in the mid-Twentieth Century as a means for convening the community at large around the most compelling issues impacting society in modern life.
