Hey there, I’m one of the librarians for the course. Just wanted to say this is a fascinating topic, and one I have a lot of personal interest in. It’s an issue libraries face, as well, as the Patriot Act also extends to individuals’ information seeking habits in libraries. I find the juxtaposition between surveillance and privacy (and I’m not sure anyone loves their privacy more than Americans!) really fascinating, and I love your inclusion of consumer habit tracking as fuel for capitalism.
If you find yourself in need of any assistance tracking down great sources for your inquiry project, give me a shout! –Laura Gariepy (firstname.lastname@example.org)
