In what will surely become a recurring topic, the discussion turns to the short-term vs. long-term implications of privacy decisions we each make, the ethics of collecting and using data, and whether a European model of privacy (or data protection as Dan reiterates we should be calling it) would help in the US. We ask why we can’t stop needing instant replies and gratification, is the value of the services we get worth the tradeoff for the data we are “paying” in order to use them, and more. Erik even beats Dan to be the first to use his “It Depends” catchphrase, so you know it’s going to be a lively discussion.
Privacy is on everyone’s mind these days, and it’s the topic of The Great Security Debate today.
