ISPY ANDREJEVIC PDF

Andrejevic calls the digital enclosure, which suggests the dystopian side of always-on, cloud-based computing. He uses this term digital enclosure in opposition to the cloud, which suggests limitless space, arguing instead that we need to recognize the very way in which there are limits in the digital realm, and that we are enclosed within them. These limits are exercised as data is demanded of us in exchange for convenience and speed. We submit to the This book introduces the idea of what Dr. We submit to the limits and even overlook them because it is seductive to do so. Andrejevic points out that we provide access to personalized data that is then commodified and sold to the benefit of the few industries that exercise control over the digital enclosure.

From Amazon to iTunes, cell phones to GPS devices, Google to TiVo—all of these products and services give us an expansive sense of choice, access, and participation. But, in an era now marked by large-scale NSA operations that secretly monitor our email exchanges and internet surfing, Mark Andrejevic shows how these new technologies are increasingly employed as modes of surveillance and control. Lively, well written, and full of examples, this is an essential book that should lead to many interesting discussions.

Andrejevic challenges us to think carefully about the ways in which interactive technologies have been all-too-easily aligned with technological progress, democracy, free speech, and political emancipation and decides to probe the darker sides of digitization. This book will be of special interest to students and established scholars in surveillance studies and Foucault-inspired studies of governance, but also those in communication studies more broadly. This is a sharp-eyed, sharp-elbowed tour of a darker world.

Many contend that our proliferating interactive media empower individuals and democratize society. But, Andrejevic asks, at what cost?

In iSpy, he reveals that these and other highly touted benefits are accompanied by hidden risks and potential threats that tend to be ignored by mainstream society. His book offers the first sustained critique of a concept that has been a talking point for twenty years, an up-to-the-minute survey of interactivity across multiple media platforms.

It debunks the false promises of the digital revolution still touted by the popular media while seeking to rehabilitate, rather than simply write off, the potentially democratic uses of interactive media. Andrejevic opens up the world of digital rights management and the data trail each of us leaves-data about our locations, preferences, or life events that are already put to use in various economic, political, and social contexts.

He also considers the appropriation of consumer marketing for political campaigns in targeting voters, and also examines the implications of the Internet for the so-called War on Terror. In iSpy, Andrejevic poses real challenges for our digital future. Amazingly detailed, compellingly readable, it warns that we need to temper our enthusiasm for these technologies with a better understanding of the threats they pose-to be able to distinguish between interactivity as centralized control and as collaborative participation.

iSpy: Surveillance and Power in the Interactive Era

Gabar Although at times, his tone is somber and often paranoid in feeling, Andrejevic offers a cogent reading of the relationship between surveillance and new technologies in con- temporary society. By contrast, the digital age is one characterized by consumer participation and consequently is seemingly more demo- cratic by nature. In iSpyAndrejevic poses real challenges for our digital future. John Richardson rated it it was amazing Nov 22, His sharp condemning criticism of contemporary media structures and the contemporary political culture is countered by a certain idealism he maintains in relation to a society that is more communal and democratic in nature.
