Livetweeting Another Senate Online Privacy Hearing Today (2pm EST)
(previous | next)
 

The Senate Commerce Committee will hold yet another hearing today (7/27/10) at 2pm Eastern with two panels:


  • Witness Panel 1

    • FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz

    • FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski



  • Witness Panel 2

    • Guy "Bud" Tribble, Apple's VP for Software Technology

    • Bret Taylor, Facebook CTO

    • Alma Whitten, Google's Privacy Engineering Lead

    • Jim Harper, Cato Institute

    • Dorothy Atwood, AT&T's Senior Vice President, Public Policy & Chief Privacy Officer

    • Prof. Joe Turow, University of Pennsylvania




Join me to watch the livecast. I'll be livetweeting on the #Privacy hashtag.

I summed up most of my thoughts on the online privacy issue in my written testimony to the FTC's privacy roundtable last fall. Also check out my paper Privacy Polls v. Real-World Trade-Offs, which explains why Prof. Turow's polls can't really show us what choices consumers would make if actually presented with the trade-off between locking down on the use of their data and the content and services supported by advertising that relies on that data for its value.

Humans have survived long before today's expensive methods were evolved.
