As you start collecting more and more information about someone, and as you start analysing that person against other groups, you’re bound to find something that looks suspicious.

Evgeny Morozov, author and internet expert

Evgeny Morozov is an expert on internet and privacy issues, and author of two books, The Net Delusion: The Dark Side of Internet Freedom, and To Save Everything, Click Here: The Folly of Technological Solutionism .

Morozov has been a visiting scholar at Stanford University and a Schwartz fellow at the New America Foundation.

He is a contributing editor at The New Republic and a columnist for Slate , The New York Times , The Economist , The Wall Street Journal , Financial Times , London Review of Books , and The Times Literary Supplement .

Morozov spoke to Empire about the role of private companies that snoop for the government; how the NSA’s surveillance programmes apply not just to Americans; and why it is so difficult to build accountability into the surveillance operations conducted by private operators.
