Privacy as a Choice

Accepted Session
Scheduled: Tuesday, June 1, 2010 from 7:00 – 8:30pm in Steel


Giving up personal information seems to be the price of entry for much of the Internet today. Can't we make it a choice again?


Users are starting to accept the idea that personal information is a price they must pay before enjoying all that their favorite websites have to offer. This is a paradigm that shouldn’t come to pass. Can we develop tools that are easy enough for the end-user to set up, so that privacy is a choice once again?
