Don’t Miss It! O’Reilly Webcast: The Evolution from Private to Public, October 28
Just a short reminder post about our upcoming O’Reilly webcast that explores the concept of privacy in the digital age. Terence is a panelist and I am helping out (please say hi to me in the comments section as I will be fielding questions for the Q&A at the end of the discussion and providing assistance when needed). I must confess to all of you that when the panelists signed on (Jim Adler, danah boyd, Heather West, Terence too!), I was jumping up and down with “giddiness.” This is not a word that I use lightly as I pride myself on maintaining a calm demeanor (really) but together this group pretty much represents the full spectrum of the privacy landscape that Terence and I cover in our book, Privacy and Big Data:
- The companies that the panelists represent (Google, Intelius, Microsoft, and our very own PatternBuilders) are all, to one extent or another, driving the privacy debate.
- The panelists are not shy to share their opinions and those opinions are, shall we say, diverse (or perhaps contentious might be a better word).
- The panel questions (yes, I got a sneak peek) are designed to shine a light, not just on the privacy debate itself, but on how each panelist professionally and personally deals with privacy issues.
These folks are prolific writers, bloggers, twitterers (@jim_adler, @zephoria, @heatherwest, and @terencecraig), and speakers on all things related to privacy. What can I say? All we’re missing is a lawyer (no jokes please) but all the panelists have had to deal with legal issues and how they apply to company privacy policies so I think we’re covered!
The webcast is October 28, at 10:00 am Pacific—go here to sign up. I look forward to “commenting” with you!
