Privacy in the Video Everywhere World
ONLINE PRIVACYMarch 22, 2010
The emerging online video revolution begs a new definition of the word privacy, The Guardian reports. New sites are making online video more immediate and communal, says author Victor Keegan, giving us a "taste of the future when everyone will have instantaneous access to almost anyone else." Archiving video in the cloud would be an "amazing tool...if anyone ever has the time to go through it," but could also come at the expense of our privacy. "Indeed..." writes Keegan, "Whatever our fears about governments collecting data about ourselves, we seem to be two steps ahead of them in revealing it all ourselves voluntarily."
