Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jensen and Draffan look at the way machine readable devices that track our identities and purchases have infiltrated our lives and have come to define our culture.

Book News Annotation:

A mix of cold factual research and superheated activism powers Jensen and Draffan as they dig deep into questions of privacy, intellectual property, and power and control in our technological society. In the surveillance that's increasingly part of everyday life (smart cards, data mining, the Patriot Act) they see a stealing away of freedom of choice and even humanity. Jensen is the author of The Culture of Make Believe, among other works, and Draffan is a freelance researcher and writer based in Seattle.
