"Every time we search on a browser, buy something online, or post to our friends on social media, we are leveraging free resources to save time and money. But our clicks and keystrokes also fuel a massive, algorithm-powered industry that exploits our online experiences for profit. How far does this exploitation go, and what are the implications for us when we are only valued for our data? Shoshana Zuboff, author of The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, joins Douglas Rushkoff, author of Team Human (and host of the NPR One podcast of the same name), for an illuminating discussion that challenges our preconceptions about privacy, security, human autonomy, and free will in the digital age. They talk to Siva Vaidhyanathan, columnist for The Guardian and author of Antisocial Media: How Facebook Disconnects Us and Undermines Democracy. Co-presented with the Brooklyn Historical Society"
