Die nächste Zeit gehört nicht den Menschen, sondern den Computern. Was wir kaufen, wohin wir reisen, mit wem wir sprechen, was wir mögen, wen wir lieben - all das ist in den Netzwerken längst gespeichert und wird so ausgewertet, dass wir vorhersagbar werden. Wir kaufen Bücher, die Amazon uns vorschlägt, wir hören Musik, die Apple uns empfiehlt, wir befreunden uns mit Menschen, die Facebook für passend hält. Dieses Buch entwirft die Utopie einer Welt, in der die menschlichen Gefühle und der Zufall keine Rolle mehr spielen. Alles wird analysierbar. Um welchen Preis?
