Slavoj Zizek has a new book on Hegel coming out soon, here.
Something like this?
‘Der digitale Big Brother lagert seine Arbeit gleichsam an seine Insassen aus.’
‘The digital Big Brother outsources its work, as it were, to its inmates.’
from Han’s Psychopolotik.
‘All that happens must be known…Secrets are lies’
from The Circle
Addendum: and now this interesting post. Here’s a quote from the replies:
coercive uses of self-tracking devices are already in place. Heart-rate monitors are being introduced into school physical education to ensure that students don’t slack off when they should be reaching a certain exertion level. Corporate wellness programs in the US encourage workers to be physically active or face higher health insurance premiums, while car insurers are installing devices in customers’ cars to measure their driving practices and customise their insurance premiums accordingly. Virgin Pulse offers a package to employers of tracking devices that monitor not only employees’ progress towards achieving a certain fitness level or losing weight but also their sleep patterns, because well-rested and fit workers are productive workers (according to their website).
