To Read

"The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power" by Shoshana Zuboff. (Intro & Chapter 3)

This book delves into the concept of surveillance capitalism, analyzing how the commodification of personal data affects individuals' autonomy, leading to a form of digital alienation.

On Interviewing & Bias

Pay close attention to the section on interview’s bias

Supplemental Reading

If you have time, read Chapters 1 & 2 as well from Zuboff’s book.

To Watch

The intro music is terrible, but the interview is worth listening to (especially the first few minutes where Zuboff updates her thinking on the book we’ve read in class.)

To Do

This week, practice noticing your own biases when interviews and crafting questions for structured interviews.
