2018-07-03 Privacy and Agency

Why personal agency matters more than personal data: „For example, the clothes that we wear are privacy technologies. We also have norms that discourage others from, for example sticking their hands inside our clothes without permission. The fact that adtech plants tracking beacons on our naked digital selves and tracks us like animals across the digital frontier may be a norm for now, but it is also morally wrong, massively rude and now illegal under the GDPR.“

Somebody on Mastodon quoting somebody on Reddit:

“I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because your judgement and intentions are.”
