The transparent society : will technology force us to choose between privacy and freedom? by David Brin( Book )

"The Transparent Society is a call for "reciprocal transparency," If police cameras watch us, shouldn't we be able to tune into police stations? If credit bureaus sell our data, shouldn't we know who buys it? Rather than cling to an illasion of anonymity - a historical anomaly, given our origins in close-knit villages - we should focus on guarding the most important forms of privacy and preserving mutual accountability. The biggest threat to our freedom, Brin warns, is that surveillance technology will be used by too few people, not by too many."--Jacket

Star Wars on trial : science fiction and fantasy writers debate the most popular science fiction films of all time by David Brin( Book )
14 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 200 libraries worldwide
Order in the Court! Star Wars: the most significant, powerful myth of the twenty-first century or morally bankrupt military fantasy? Six films. Countless books. $20 billion in revenue. No one can question the financial value or cultural impact of the Star Wars film franchise. But has the impact been for the good? In Star Wars on Trial's courtroom, Droid Judge presiding, Star Wars stands accused of elitist politics and sexism, religious and ethical lapses, the destruction of literary science fiction and science fiction film, and numerous plot holes and logical gaps. Supported by a witness list of bestselling science fiction authors, David Brin (for the prosecution) and Matthew Woodring Stover (for the defense) debate these charges and more before delivering their closing statements. The verdict? That's up to you. The release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the perfect time to look back at George Lucas crimes, and new introductions by Brin and Stover discuss the newest generation of Star Wars films and what JJ Abrams must do to live up to or redeemthe franchise
