    MONITORED: BUSINESS AND SURVEILLANCE IN A TIME OF BIG DATA

    Book ID/图书代码: 10953019C00001

    English Summary/英文概要: We are living in the midst of a profound contradiction: on the one hand, our lives as workers, consumers, and citizens have become ever more monitored by new technologies. On the other, big business and finance have become ever less regulated and controllable.

    What does this technocratic ideology and surveillance-heavy culture reveal about the deeper reality of modern society? Monitored investigates the history and implications of this contemporary paradox. Peter Bloom reveals pervasive monitoring practices—some familiar, others shocking—that shows how even as ordinary citizens are more tightly regulated than ever, the global elite remains socially and ethically out of control.

    This will only change, Bloom argues, if we demand that the systems that administer our lives, and the technology that powers them, be forced to become more responsive to the needs of individuals than to business and government, with true social liberation as our ultimate goal.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要: 我們生活在一個深刻的矛盾之中:一方面,我們作為勞動者、消費者和公民的生活越來越受到最新科技的監控,但在另一方面,大企業和金融業卻越來越難以受到監管和控制。

    這種科技和精密的監控文化到底揭露了現代社會那些深刻的層面?

    本書調查了關於監控的歷史和影響,深度解析這種當代特有的弔詭現象。作者揭露了監控的實踐遠比我們所想的更為普遍,有些是我們所熟悉的,有些則令人震驚,這顯示了即使只是一個普通的平凡公民,也比以往受到更廣泛嚴格的監控,然而與此同時,全球最頂尖的精英和上層階級卻仍和過去一樣在社會和道德層面享有不受控制的自由。

    作者指出,要改變這種狀況,唯有透過我們強力要求使那些監控我們生活的系統和科技得到管理,迫使它們能真正對每一個個別的人負起責任,而非對企業或政府,唯有如此,才能實現社會解放的終極目標。

    「數據經濟以無處不在的監控為特色。對於那些希望識別、抵制和挑戰大數據對個人、民主和社會的監督後果的人來說,本書是一本必讀之作。」
    ──Kirstie Ball,聖安德魯斯大學,信息,監視和隱私研究中心主任

    「本書兼具敏銳與深刻,洞察了這個監控越來越普遍的世界,且提出了深具挑戰性的探問,關於誰被監視、誰擁有隱私、以及我們是如何自己賣給監控的牢籠。」
    ──Nick Srnicek,倫敦國王學院,藝術與人文學院,數位經濟講師 (Zoe)

    Awards/获奖情况:“The data economy features surveillance which is simultaneously everywhere and nowhere. This book is essential reading for those who wish to identify, resist, and challenge the surveillance consequences of big data for the individual, for democracy, and for society.”

    (Kirstie Ball, University of St Andrews, Director, Centre for Research into Information, Surveillance and Privacy)

    “A brisk and insightful guide to our world of increasingly ubiquitous surveillance that poses challenging questions about who is surveilled, who has privacy, and how we are being sold the chains to our own imprisonment.”

    (Nick Srnicek, King’s College London)
