Privacy has, again, been in the news a lot this week. Here is a link to a recording of a panel discussion from 2012 in New York City that addressed this issue: https://archive.org/details/IsPrivacyOverhyped-FourViewsOfTechnologySecurityAndDemocracyOnline.
And here is a link to some media coverage that the event received at the time: http://observer.com/2012/04/is-privacy-overhyped-a-panel-discusses/.
The media doesn't mention it, but I was there also, standing behind Jacob Appelbaum and his attorney in the audience, and apprehensively and curiously observing the interplay between the stated positions of these various personalities.
Are we making progress or nah? J
