To Read

"10 reasons to delete your social media account" by Jaron Lanier.

Read pages 1- 50 (it’s an easy read - skim when possible; read closer when needed). Remember to read this as a historical document as much as current argument.

Supplemental Reading

Lanier’s work was published in 2018 and Data & Society article was published in 2023. When comparing the two, what’s changed (and what hasn’t)?
