Final Project Proposal

I am going to read Shoshanna Zuboff’s Surveillance Capitalism from start to finish. I will read the book online through Amazon’s Kindle Cloud Reader. With my current type settings the book is 520 pages (without footenotes, acknowledgements etc). If I start the book on Thursday April April 18th and read 34 pages a day I will finish it on Wednesday May 3rd. During that time I will be surveilling myself. I would like to screen record for the entire 34 page session, perhaps use something like WebGazer and download my browser history. Between May 2nd and May 7th I will analyze the data I collected on myself and present it alongside a kind of lecture or paper on what I learned while reading.
