Shoshana Zuboff’s new book, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, is an investigation of the business model (and logic of accumulation) underlying the giants of Big Data.
Because it lies right at the intersection of technology, philosophy, and economics, we think it is the ideal book to launch our reading group for the OPN.
We’re looking forward to diving into this book and unravelling it with a mixture of philosophers, tech enthusiasts, and whoever else is interested.
