Abstract/Summary One of the indisputable facts of the digital era is that we are living in a time when more information is gathered, collected, sorted and stored about the everyday activities of more people in the world than at any other time in human history. This is in part a result of the technological possibilities created by digital interactivity- that networked devices can record how (and when and where) they are used-but it is also the result of economic choices about how to support the information infrastructure upon which growing numbers of people are becoming increasingly reliant. The global privatization of the network infrastructure and the commercialization of the applications that rely upon it have led to the development of an advertising- based model that exploits the interactive capacity of digital media to enable more sophisticated and detailed forms of consumer monitoring in the service of increasingly targeted advertising and marketing appeals (see Turow and Draper, this volume).
