Anticipatory Action (Anderson, 2010) aims at rendering the future actionable. To shape the future, relevant elements of the present are singled out and modulated. In this paper, it will be argued that we should understand the ethics of emerging technologies as anticipatory action. Using the example of big data analytics, it will also be demonstrated how non-users of digital media may become disadvantaged if social media data become the only source for anticipating the future.
