"Information Overload: Managing Privacy in an Information Sharing World." presented by Joe Andrieu
As Eben Moglen testified to Congress,
"Facebook holds and controls more data about the daily lives and social interactions of half a billion people than 20th-century totalitarian governments ever managed to collect about the people they surveilled."
How can we protect our privacy when so many of us give it up every day in a thousand small ways as we use the Internet? It is a question asked and worked on by many organizations and companies. DNT, P3P, Mozilla Privacy Icons, the Privacy Nutrition Facts Label, Terms of Service; Didn't Read, Disconnect.me, Common Terms, Open Notice, The Standard Information Sharing Label, OpenPDS, SafeAnswers, IndieBox are just a few of the efforts to improve individual privacy and autonomy online.
Join us for a review of real world efforts to change how people manage information sharing and consent. The Co-Chair of the Consent and Information Sharing Work Group, Joe Andrieu, is the creator of the information sharing simulators I Shared What?!? and ShowMeFirst!, which reveal what Facebook shares about you when you login with Facebook to online services. He is also the editor of the Standard Information Sharing Label specification.
