I’m studying for my Communications class and need an explanation.

reflection journal entry should discuss each of the week’s readings and lectures. Make sure you clearly discuss each assigned reading, while also drawing connections between them. What did you find interesting? Surprising? Provocative? What shifted how you see the internet in our lives? Are there perspectives the author does not address? What questions do you have? Use writing to think about key ideas more deeply.

reflection journals engage the big ideas presented in the readings and lectures and offer new, unique insights not covered in readings or lecture. They connect course materials to practices and observations from life beyond the course. They also clearly address all readings.

The first reading is


The age of surveillance capitalism : the fight for a human future at the new frontier of power / Shoshana Zuboff

Contents Will the digital future be our home? — The collision — Who knows? — The foundations of surveillance capitalism — The origins of surveillance capitalism — The elaboration of surveillance capitalism : kidnap, corner, compete — The reality business — Rendition : from map to territory — Make them dance — The right to the future tense — The contest for the future tense — Big other and the rise of instrumentarian power — Instrumentarian power for a third modernity — Of life in the hive
Summary “Shoshana Zuboff, named “the true prophet of the information age” by the Financial Times, has always been ahead of her time. Her seminal book In the Age of the Smart Machine foresaw the consequences of a then-unfolding era of computer technology. Now, three decades later she asks why the once-celebrated miracle of digital is turning into a nightmare. Zuboff tackles the social, political, business, personal, and technological meaning of “surveillance capitalism” as an unprecedented new market form. It is not simply about tracking us and selling ads, it is the business model for an ominous new marketplace that aims at nothing less than predicting and modifying our everyday behavior–where we go, what we do, what we say, how we feel, who we’re with. The consequences of surveillance capitalism for us as individuals and as a society vividly come to life in The Age of Surveillance Capitalism’s pathbreaking analysis of power. The threat has shifted from a totalitarian “big brother” state to a universal global architecture of automatic sensors and smart capabilities: A “big other” that imposes a fundamentally new form of power and unprecedented concentrations of knowledge in private companies–free from democratic oversight and control”– Provided by publisher
