Notes from the Electronic Cottage 10/5/17

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

The 18th Century philosopher Jeremy Bentham knew that people change their behavior if they think they are being watched. George Orwell in 1984 drew on the same realization but neither had any inkling of how watched some people feel on the web. There is recent data that they were both right, and how people might change their behavior is not always the way that either politicians or corporations like.
