Flyverbom in prestigeous exchange with Zuboff and Power: 'Surveillance Capitalism: Reform and Reorganization for a Democratic Future'
'Surveillance capitalism' happened to us while we were busy making other plans, but that's no longer an option. Tech companies did not deliver the bright digital future they promised us, but rather what Shoshana Zuboff has called 'intolerable conditions of glass life' and a 'fast-growing abyss between what we know and what is known about us'.
In the new issue of the international Organization Theory Journal, Mikkel Flyverbom engages with Shoshana Zuboff (Harvard Business School) and Mike Power (London School of Economics and Political Science) in an exchange of ideas about how we can understand and react to this state of affairs in tech.
Their 'Conversations & Controversies' exchange 'Surveillance Capitalism: Reform and Reorganization for a Democratic Future' contains these three articles, free to download here:
1) Zuboff: Surveillance Capitalism or Democracy? The Death Match of Institutional Orders and the Politics of Knowledge in Our Information Civilization
2) Power: Theorizing the Economy of Traces: From Audit Society to Surveillance Capitalism https://lnkd.in/e5Vh4VuX
3) Flyverbom: Overlit: Digital Architectures of Visibility https://lnkd.in/gh3t9F_g
The three have plans for a collective talk on these ideas - and hopefully the Digital Transformations Platform will have Zuboff back at Copenhagen Business School soon.
