Writing from the heart of California’s technology industry (near San Francisco) Eggers asks: what sort of world are we entering as our moral aspirations mature (or perhaps narrow in on) transparency as the cure for immorality and social ills—especially as the technical apparatus through which it is expressed matures? What will life be like when we “close the circle” and our lives become “transparent”—visible and traceable instantaneously and deep into the past?
