[Nettime-bold] Privacy Lecture Series - Lisa Austin, March 19, 2002

[Hello, the next lecture will be held on March 19th and Lisa Austin will be 
speaking. She will discuss the ever more fluid boundaries between internal 
and external, between private and public, and their relationship to new 
information and communcation technologies. Lisa will also discuss new ways 
of reconceptualizing privacy that are better suited for today's 
technological age. I think it will be a great lecture :-) Hope to see you 
there.  Ana Viseu]

As technology becomes part in most of our daily activities, the boundaries 
between internal and external, privacy and public, start to shift and with 
them the notion of privacy. Is it now time to sit down and rethink the 
traditional privacy concept so that is better suited for the challenges of 
an information age? In her talk Lisa Austin will discuss these issues. She 
will take the audience through a discussion of the changing relationship 
between the development and usage of information and communication 
technologies and privacy advocacy. Lisa Austin will provide some guidelines 
as to how privacy can be reconceptualized to better fit today's reality.
