The Future of Privacy

We discuss data privacy with Don McIntosh, director of marketing and product planning for Space-Time Research, a data transparency, visualization and privacy firm out of Australia.

Says Don: “Many people, especially Gen Y, have the view that privacy is not an issue for them and to quote Eric Schmidt, ‘If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.’ I much prefer the view of Bruce Schneier, who is pretty much the world’s leading expert in information security, who points out in an excellent essay very clearly that people espousing that view ‘… accept the premise that privacy is about hiding a wrong. It’s not. Privacy is an inherent human right, and a requirement for maintaining the human condition with dignity and respect.’”
