Privacy Is “More Complicated Than We Realized”
PRIVACY IN POPULAR CULTUREAugust 23, 2013
When Shel Israel and Robert Scoble started looking into their second book together, Age of Context: How Mobile, Sensors and Data Will Change Your Life, it was because “we’re enthusiasts of new technology,” said Israel. As Rackspace’s startup liaison officer, Scoble has gained wide renown in tech circles for his Scobleizer blog and Twitter handle. Israel is maybe best known for his writings for Forbes, where he looks at “the ever-evolving tech industry.” So maybe their initial impressions of privacy should not be surprising: “We joked that people ought to get over it,” Israel said with a laugh. “But the more we listened, the more deeply we realized that we don’t really have a choice about what’s coming.” The Privacy Advisor offers you exclusive thoughts from Israel about how privacy will become a business driver, plus a free download of the privacy chapter from the book.
