Really insightful book, just like her other books. The Age of the Smart Machine (1988) was truly visionary and well written. The Surveillance Capitalism is like bag of unique viewpoints and concepts: 'behavioral surplus', 'instrumentarianism', 'radical indifference' etc. Illustrations are funny.

Each time this links get posted to HN someone comments on these concepts but when I google them I don’t get much back, would you elaborate on 1-2 sentences of each? (Please?) I’m super curious
