Dataclysm: Who We Are When We Think No One’s Looking by Christian Rudder

Dataclysm shows what data collected on the internet can tell us about the people who use it, opposed to information gathered from the sterile environment of a scientific laboratory. What you’ll learn is not all good news: when we think no one is watching, we often behave in nasty, brutish ways.

  • Anyone interested in human behavior “in the wild”
  • Anyone who gets mired in pointless arguments on websites’ comments sections
  • Anyone looking for love through online dating websites

Christian Rudder was the creative voice of TheSpark.com before going on to co-create the popular dating website, OkCupid.
