Reflecting on the fact that most of the people I know who are concerned about online surveillance work in tech themselves.
Like, is it because we work more closely with it and thus know how all this stuff works? If the general public fully understood what they were accepting with recent tech, would they be okay with it?
Not all tech workers are concerned with it, but the number of less-technical people I've encountered who are concerned with it is pretty close to zero.
