At the beginning of the twenty-first century, breathtaking changes
in technology are posing stark challenges to our constitutional
values. From free speech to privacy, from liberty and personal
autonomy to the right against self-incrimination, basic
constitutional principles are under stress from technological
advances unimaginable even a fewdecades ago, let alone during the
founding era. In this provocative collection, America's leading
scholars of technology, law, and ethics imagine how to translate
and preserve constitutional and legal values at a time of dizzying
technological change.Constitution 3.0 explores some of the most
urgent constitutional questions of the near future. Will privacy
become obsolete, for example, in a world where ubiquitous
surveillance is becoming the norm? Imagine that Facebook and Google
post livefeeds from public and private surveillance cameras,
allowing 24/7 tracking of any citizen in the world. How can we
protect free speech now that Facebook and Google have more power
than any king, president, or Supreme Court justice to decide who
can speak and who can be heard? How will advanced brain-scan
technology affect the constitutional rightagainst
self-incrimination? And on a more elemental level, should people
have the right to manipulate their genes and design their own
babies? Should we be allowed to patent new forms of life that seem
virtually human? The constitutional challenges posed by
technological progress are wide-ranging, with potential impacts on
nearly every aspect of life in America and around the world.The
