Vint Cerf is Wrong. Privacy Is Not an Anomaly
PRIVACYNovember 22, 2013
During a keynote address at the FTC roundtable on the Internet of Things on Tuesday, Google Chief Internet Evangelist Vint Cerf said, “privacy may actually be an anomaly.” Not all agree, however, with this assertion. “The view of privacy as an anomaly is not new, particularly among Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, who time and again express a cavalier approach to what is a fundamental, deep-rooted social, moral and legal value,” writes IAPP VP of Research Omer Tene. In this installment of Privacy Perspectives, Tene lays out his argument for why privacy may be evolving but is hardly an anomaly.
