Our world is at a crossroads. Personal gadgets are getting smarter, and technology is increasingly shaping public life too - logging everything from crime figures to how much we recycle, pollution levels to politicians' voting records. But what will the effect of this new transparency be on us? When we quantify our actions, do we change our motivations? Is a world without opacity one where we can be free? By saving everything, Evgeny Morozov argues, we are profoundly reshaping society - and risk losing the imperfection that makes us human.
