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!

Tune in on October 28, 10:00 AM PDT, for what promises to be a very lively discussion from panelists that are never shy about sharing their (varied) opinions as they take on the issue of how our private and public worlds are colliding in the digital age!
