ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Tech commentators tend to swerve between pessimism and utopianism. In The Secret Life of Data, two expert authors take a deep dive approach and come up with a more nuanced and grounded analysis. The authors, Jesse Gilbert and Aram Sinnreich, cite poignant case studies to underscore the exposure surrounding data practices in today’s hyper-connected world. Dave interviews Jesse and Aram on the latest data collection practices, the technology that is evolving to keep it private, and the nefarious work of trolls and bad actors — digging in on the real and imagined concerns around all.

“Your network, social, personal, professional, are all effectively reporting on your behavior without you participating.” 

-Aram Sinnreich

“Those who rule data will rule the entire world.”

-Masayoshi Son
