Database Nation



I’m getting increasingly miffed by all those newspapers that require you to register before you can read something online. I simply do not want to give away my information just to read something. Which reminded me of the book Database Nation that I read quite a while back and that I can only recommend.

PS: If you look at the Amazon page, you’ll have to excuse those “critics” who claim that technology doesn’t have anything to do with politics or that you can’t blame technology or whatever else it is they say. This whole Amazon review system is really just a joke. It might work for novels - even though there still is this kind of bias where reviews that diss a book get bad ratings - but for books like this one you can’t have a bunch of non-experts comment on the book as if they knew what they are talking about.
