A public lecture by Professor Joseph Turow.  Professor Turow 
is just completing a comprehensive study of the ways in 
which  new digital technology fundamentally alters the 
relationship between consumers and those interactively 
involved in selling to them.  Professor Turow provides novel 
insights into the privacy issues, questions of autonomy and 
self, and areas for regulatory concern.   

Turow is Robert Lewis Shayon Professor of Communication at 
the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg School For 
Communication.  He is the author of more than 50 articles 
and seven books on mass media industries, including
