[liberationtech] "Surveillance Valley" book

I’m a reporter for Pando Daily covering <http://pando.com/author/ylevine/> Silicon Valley’s surveillance business (and culture). I don’t contribute to the list, but I do follow it. And I just launched a book project that intersects with many of the issues discussed here. 

The book’s called “Surveillance Valley: The Rise of the Google-Military Complex.” 

It’s an investigation into SV's for-profit surveillance business, its deep ties to the military-industrial complex and the increasing ways all this spy tech is being used to control our lives. One of the big overarching questions the book will tackle: How did the Internet go from being a tool of liberation to one of total surveillance —  spawning global corporations, concentrating wealth and power and expanding the reach of the U.S. National Security State? 

You can read more about the book here: http://pando.com/2015/02/23/support-yasha-levines-surveillance-valley-a-book-about-how-silicon-valley-created-the-worlds-most-effective-surviellance-apparatus/ <http://pando.com/2015/02/23/support-yasha-levines-surveillance-valley-a-book-about-how-silicon-valley-created-the-worlds-most-effective-surviellance-apparatus/>

Best,

PS: The book will feature new reporting, but I hope to also incorporate and extend the vital work of many of the scholars here. So I thank you in advance!
