p 248 "Along with the nodes and hubs in the system, dominant groups determine how and in what interests the material infrastructure operates"

p 252: "Of course, surveillance exhibits more than one face. But the face that is publicized is that of the smoothly running organization, the rapid response to consumer demands or to security calls, the  flexibility of the management structure, and not the negative and possibly undesirable aspects of personal data processing. The discriminatory power of contemporary surveillance is wielded by large organizations that have strong interests in valuable personal data. The persons from whom such data are abstracted face a built-in disadvantage in this respect." [1]
