  • TechCrunch claimed that while, everyone wants technology to be more private, we must  increasingly discern between leading companies' promises and delivery.

The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities - Zbigniew Brzezinski, in Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Technetronic Era (1970).
