The Digital Person: Technology and Privacy in the Information Age (Google eBook)
Seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, electronic databases are compiling information about you. As you surf the Internet, an unprecedented amount of your personal information is being recorded and preserved forever in the digital minds of computers. For each individual, these databases create a profile of activities, interests, and preferences used to investigate backgrounds, check credit, market products, and make a wide variety of decisions affecting our lives. The creation and use of these databases—which Daniel J. Solove calls “digital dossiers”—has thus far gone largely unchecked. In this startling account of new technologies for gathering and using personal data, Solove explains why digital dossiers pose a grave threat to our privacy.
The Digital Person sets forth a new understanding of what privacy is, one that is appropriate for the new challenges of the Information Age. Solove recommends how the law can be reformed to simultaneously protect our privacy and allow us to enjoy the benefits of our increasingly digital world.
The first volume in the series EX MACHINA: LAW, TECHNOLOGY, AND SOCIETY

Solove does an excellent job in the first chapter of this book, outlining the dangers of online digital information. Written in 2004, its still a relevant read even in today's modern internet environment. In the first chapter, Solove tears down the metaphor of Big Brother from Orwell's 1984, and showcases how the government is not the true problem with the hoarding and abuse of data - its big business. But after the first chapter, Solove essentially spends the rest of the book containing to bash against the concept of an Orwellian society and comparing and contrasting that against Frank Kafka's "The Trial." The endless comparisons and praise for Kafka's work over Orwell's turns this into a comparison/contrast review between two different authors with today's digital environment as the backdrop. Essentially, the book becomes unreadable from a position of internet privacy in today's society, and more of a long-running, semi-engaged masturbatory review of Kafka's "brilliance" as a writer on what the author believes today's modern environment has become. In essence, save your time and money - rent the movie version of Kafka's book instead.
