Julia Angwin, Author of DRAGNET NATION on Privacy, Security and Freedom
The guest is Julia Angwin, author of DRAGNET NATION: A Quest for Privacy, Security, and Freedom in a World of Relentless Surveillance. Angwin provides an unsettling look at how the government, private companies, and criminals use technology to indiscriminately sweep up vast amounts of our personal data, and what they can do with it.
Angwin discusses her research and reporting and her own attempts to protect herself in an every-growing cyber world.
With DRAGNET NATION Angwin aims to increase tech literacy and ignite debate about the vast suspicionless surveillance of our daily lives.
