You are being watched. Whether through your phone or your car or your credit card, CCTV cameras, or your online viewing history, government agencies know where you are and are quietly collecting your most intimate, mundane, and personal information. Is this even legal?

In our codenomi-con keynote, author Cyrus Farivar will introduce his most recent book, “Habeas Data,” which shows how the explosive growth of surveillance technology has outpaced our understanding of the ethics, mores, and laws of privacy.
