    The Not-So Private Parts

    To what extent do we still care about violation of privacy? With the advent of social networking sites where individuals lay bare the details of their lives, and the privacy sacrifices made in the name of safety and security, some might suggest we've entered a post-private age. Which aspects of privacy do we willingly sacrifice, and why?

    When does privacy matter and when does it not? The conventional wisdom is that Europeans distrust corporations, while Americans worry more about government invading their privacy. Is that still true? How is that changing?

    I'm exploring how our society negotiates privacy, protection, and exhibitionism. When privacy comes into conflict with security, efficiency, and socializing, how do we balance them?

    Keep track of my work at True/Slant: The Not-So Private Parts.
