CCT Second-Year Reviews New Futuristic Novel

Posted in News

 Second-year CCT student, Scott Eldridge recently completed his review of Dave Eggers’ futuristic novel, The Circle (new window). This novel examines how the author uses ideas of exploitive quantification technology along with manipulating corporate rhetoric to create a commercial surveillance organization.  Eldridge’s review highlights the fact that many of Eggers’ technology examples already exist today, and it cautions us to be vigilant about our data and our privacy.

Scott’s review has been officially accepted for publication in IEEE Technology and Society Magazine.
