How do we define privacy?

Authoritative definitions tend to define terms in a way that facilitates the agenda of that authority; when the agenda changes, so does the definition.

Blind belief in authority is the greatest enemy of truth. - Albert Einstein

Ouch! You really don't care for the guy too much, huh!

I think a lot of us view out cell phones the same way we view other risks -- we think only other people are at risk and that we personally are somehow immune from the danger.

My friend lost her cell phone once and some off-balanced person found it and kept calling her for months.  

It seems that when choosing between the value of the data and privacy, the value of the data always wins.  The option is, don't have a smart phone, DVR, or a car with GPS.  Don't use Facebook or other social sites.  Don't walk into stores, or even outside and don't use a computer.  Hmm, I can do that.. Not! 

For most of us, the concern would be identity theft.  

What I really want to see is that data benefiting me instead of a marketer.  Maybe I'll try a fitness app.

I would define privacy online as this---clearly stated rules of the game for every app and service and site online. Then, if someone decides to stop using any of those, or decides to get off the Internet altogether, the right to either take your data with you or delete it permanently.

If I had lost my mobile phone, I would hope the one who get my phone will send it back to me seeing my contact and personal info. I am afraid that that one will message improper mails to my contacts and if I had kept nude pics in mobile, I would worry too much as there is potential to be exposed to public. That's all.

Someone doing business with mobile phone must worry his/her important docs.

" Now take it one step further. Would you agree to share your cellphone data if it was the socially responsible thing to do? "

 

No.   I would not doing it for any reason, since I am a naturally private person ( believe or not) , this extends to any device I use as well. 

Now of course my data could be "stolen" but I would never freely share it.  And most likely my data would not be needed, as there would be more than enough people who would.

Noreen, - I connect with this story in many ways...first i have this tablet i bought then after about three months i basically lost interest in keeping it. I have wanted to give it out for someone else to use but i can't manage to remove my gmail data from it. So i keep postponing until i find out how...Then the location thing; it hit me just recently how powerful the internet has become. If i can locate someone down to their desk just by their IP address...then search the internet by uploading an image someone sends me....its creepy stuff.

How do we define privacy? Is there even consensus on what the word means today?

Bettencourt lives in the ivory tower and already dehumanizes whatever city he studies -- we're all just moving parts in a big organic machine to him. So lets please not take his view on privacy as the word.
