The Age of Surveillance

Technological developments are dramatically enhancing the ability of government and the private sector to collect, store, analyze, and disseminate information about all Americans. As a society, we are only beginning to respond to these developments. There has been relatively little debate about how to place sensible limits on the collection of information and how to ensure that information is not used in ways that are discriminatory, repressive, or otherwise inimical to an open society.
