Privacy and panopticons: a conversation with Andrew Keen

Andrew Keen bemoans the end of privacy over a pint at the Jeremy Bentham. Where else?

Location Global

Andrew Keen is an outspoken critic of the internet. His first book, The cult of the amateur, lamented the demise of the expert. His forthcoming book, Digital Vertigo, bemoans the end of privacy as a consequence of the social web – an idea he sets out in a recent article for Wired UK. “Human happiness is really about being left alone,” he argues. I ask him to elaborate on these ideas in an interview. He suggests we meet at the Jeremy Bentham pub. Where else?
