Read full description of the books Data and Power: Big Data and Corporate Control in Modern America:In America today, there is an extreme concentration of power in the hands of the few. Big data is the lynchpin, and the public is at risk.
Beautifully designed and with equal parts rigor and passion, Data and Power is a bold exploration of the rising influence of technology and digital media corporations in modern America. Rather than consider the topic in isolation, Data and Power addresses big data in its full economic, political, and social context.
Big data underlies our economy, our government, and our social networks. It has dramatically changed our society and mostly in positive ways, but security and privacy measures lag far behind the cutting edge resources we take for granted. Search engines, social networks, email, and so on may seem free--and monetarily they are--but for each service the true cost is data. Most of us are blissfully unaware of the shocking extent to which government and corporations alike collect and use our personal data. Even paranoia and privacy concerns aside, big data has caused a dangerous concentration of power.
