Strong as a technical survey, weak on the social implications,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Age of Context: Mobile, Sensors, Data and the Future of Privacy (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed the book as a rapid survey of the contextual technology landscape, and particularly welcomed the examples - although the approach make the book seem more like an extended post or magazine article. Where it fell down is in assessing the problems - privacy, data ownership, security etc etc. The NSA revelations, which were just breaking when the book was written, and which continue to unfold may come to make this shortcoming weigh much more heavily than it might otherwise. Worth reading, though....
