Washington, DC — Dialogue on Diversity presents its ninth annual Colloquium, part of the international celebration of Internet Data Privacy Day, exploring the past, present, and future of the internet – and the fortunes of classic privacy values in the face of the advances in information technology and other hi- and lo-tech innovations. Some questions —
ü What is Privacy? — a Power to Exclude Observation, a Sphere of Reasonably Expected Security, a Package of “Property” Interests in the Subject’s “Effects”, a Juridically Defined List of Restraints on Observation? Or a typically American Mélange of all these?
ü Can Privacy Protections be Made Part of System Design in IT Installations, Here and Abroad – Commercial and Governmental ? Cyber-security: the Name of the Game.
ü A Right of Oblivion – May Subjects Demand Erasure of their Traces? – the Evolving European and U.S. Legal Realms.
ü Governmental Surveillance and Data Collection Hacking and Encryption.
ü The Convoluted Economics of the Internet — Is there a Tacit Bargain: A Customized Internet Experience for Me – Paid for with My Secrets ? Your Profile packaged by Data Brokers for their Commercial Clients.
ü Privacy Values and Legal Protections – Special Questions of Student Privacy; Unmanned Aircraft Surveillance; the Advancing Reach of IT Applications in the Health Care Industries; High Drama on the Highway: The License Plate Readers
