Preview of Class #11: Is Big Tech Evil?

My next “Advanced Topic in Law” class will be devoted to the topic of digital privacy and “big tech” companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon. Are these companies “evil,” i.e. do they exploit our data in ways that are harmful or do they manipulate our choices and beliefs for their own commercial gains? For the “pro” side, I will assign the documentary “The Social Dilemma” (see the official trailer below), and for the “con” side, I will assign Chapter 6 of Tyler Cowen’s Love Letter to Big Business.

    Along these lines, I am currently reading “Anti-Social” by Andrew Marantz — pretty sobering. I had already given up Facebook but never realized how blankly manipulative it actually was. Hope you enjoy your stay in P.R. – Craig
