Privacy in the Virtual World - Dublin, 27 June 2008

Darklight Film Festival 2008 - Dublin, Ireland


Letting It All Hang Out: Privacy Vs. Publicity In The Virtual World

Film Base, Curved Street, Temple Bar, Dublin

Friday 27 June 2008
10 - 11.30 am

For a new generation of 'digital natives' privacy is no longer a requirement. Web 2.0 has brought with it a transformation in how we view the need for privacy and engage with the public realm - but at what cost? The discussion will be prefaced by a keynote address from Daniel J. Solove, Associate Professor of law at the George Washington University Law School, and author of The Digital Person: Technology and Privacy In the Information Age. Chaired by Irish Times writer Karlin Lillington, the panel will also feature Irish blogging guru Damien Mulley and solicitor/digital rights expert Caroline Campbell.

Issues to be considered include:
* Can bloggers say what they like?
* What's wrong with having nothing to hide?
* Who is really stalking you on Facebook? .. Does anyone care anymore?
* Is there a generation gap in approaches to online privacy?
