Pierre Levy's insight:
Using surveillance as the major subject of a conference whose aim is to ‘theorize the Web’ seems to be a questionable choice which I personally disagree with. Although it is perfectly legitimate to ask oneself what role is digital technology playing, as a technical device, in the society of surveillance. But insofar as surveillance goes beyond (and precedes) the issue of digital technology, I don’t understand why it should be the main subject of the ‘Theory of the Web.’ And, as such, even if he has been widely quoted by several speakers, Foucault does not seem to be the best suited author to understand the digital changes that we are experiencing.
