The Dark Arts of Algorithms

“It’s when we venture into the vast void of data storage, sharing, and surveillance that things start to take a frightening turn. Because while we can’t imagine living without the advantages algorithms afford us, we can’t fully know the extent of the trade-off we’re submitting to either. Who’s watching, what are they looking for, and what will they do with what they find? The thought is enough to induce paranoia of Orwellian proportions amongst even the most innocent of Internet users.”
