My new book has just been released. It’s called: BADMEN: How Advertising Went From A Minor Annoyance To A Major Menace.
Maybe it’s just me, but I think surveillance marketing, the collection and selling of personal information, online tracking, and ad tech are existential dangers to free societies.
I think the monopolistic powers of some tech giants have gotten way out of control. I think the idea that “the consumer is in charge” is the stupidest, most naive bullshit we’ve been fed since some dimwit decided that people wanted to “join the conversation” about their frozen fish sticks.
