Can your boss make you wear a Fitbit?

Julia Ticona

Technology is becoming mandatory in our lives, and the way we regulate it needs to acknowledge that argues Data & Society Postdoctoral Scholar Julia Ticona.

“’There needs to be just a broader acknowledgement of the necessity of these things in people’s lives, not just as the superficial social technologies but increasingly as the mundane ways that we get stuff done in our everyday lives,’ says Julia Ticona, a postdoctoral researcher at the Data & Society Research Institute in New York. ‘[We need] to really treat them instead of purely individual consumer devices, to treat them as a part of public infrastructure.’”
