We will explore how the internet and social media have enabled pervasive surveillance, its inner workings hidden from view and inaccessible to us, and how the data collected are being used to direct our behavior. We also will explore the history of directed behavior, which predates Google and Facebook by more than half a century, missed opportunities to regulate surveillance and influence, and what we as individuals and a society can, cannot, and should do, to safeguard our privacy and our freedom from undue influence.
Instructor: Lee Compton
Born a Californian, Lee spent half his life in New York City. A molecular biologist, he ended up leading a very small biotechnology company. He served as Chair of the NYS Biodiversity Research Institute and as a director of the Javits Convention Center. As a member of Manhattan Community Board 4, he worked on rezonings leading to the High Line park and Hudson Yards, which resulted in the first affordable housing mandates written into the NYCity Zoning Resolution. His interests in Tucson include hiking and exploring, photography, cooking, and the flora and fauna of the Sonoran Desert.
