World Without Secrets Summary


World Without Secrets: Business, Crime, and Privacy in the Age of Ubiquitous Computing by Richard S. Hunter

The future of computing-the future of business Rapid technological innovation is moving us towards a world of ubiquitous computing-a world in which we are surrounded by smart machines that are always on, always aware, and always monitoring us. These developments will create a world virtually without secrets in which information is widely available and analyzable worldwide. This environment will certainly affect business, government, and the individual alike, dramatically affecting the way organizations and individuals interact. This book explores the implications of the coming world and suggests and explores policy options that can protect individuals and organizations from exploitation and safeguard the implicit contract between employees, businesses, and society itself. World Without Secrets casts an unflinching eye on a future we may not necessarily desire, but will experience.

World Without Secrets Reviews


"...the book [World Without Secrets] is important -- it contains fresh thinking, a rarity these days" (New York Times, April 28, 2002) "delivers a first-rate explanation...writes expertly and urgently about the panoply of internet-related problems... This is an important book which sheds thought-provoking light..." (BookPage, August 2002) "...I would however definitely recommend this book as it certainly is an interesting, if not a little chilling, read..." (M2 Best Books, 5 September 2002) "...an excellent introduction to contemporary attitudes towards and policies of surveillance..." (Free Pint, 31 October 2002) "...written with a mixture of eloquence and frivolity that makes the book hard to put down...it is carefully crafted from numerous interviews with people...to create a well-rounded and multi-faced story..." (The Times Higher Educational Supplement, 15 November 2002)
