Do you, like me, have the impression that things are somehow accelerating? As if we were on a car careening downhill with no brakes --and no driver either?

Am I overreacting? Facebook wants our nude pics in advance, to better protect us against revenge porn; the industry (industry!) of workplace surveillance is out of control; and Google preemptively censors us if an algorithm decides one of *our* Google Docs may be violating the law.
How do you call all this? John Naughton on the Guardian very Britishly wrote of a half-educated digital elite.
I call it the attack of the algojerks.
