Cities are our paradise of self-reinvention, but aggregating small amounts of public data is going to change that. How the evanescent things will take lasting life, and what that means for our moral selves.
At some point very soon, a large amount of public information, like a car license plate, will be part of a mosaic portraying personal lives. At that point, believers in technology say, we’ll build a better society by eliminating deceit. Are we moral, though, if we don’t wrestle with problems?
