Topic # 65036 28-Jul-2010 09:43 Send private message

As part of the TVNZ 7 Internet Debate, I am starting a discussion on one of their workshop topics:

"Individual vs Industry: are ISPs operators of dumb pipes or are they responsible for people's behaivour? What duty of care do innovators like Facebook and Google have to keep our personal information private? Is there a privacy tradeoff the public is willing to bear?"

The debate is on 11 August 2010 9:10pm. It will be live on TVNZ channel 7, Sky Digital channel 97, and online at TVNZ 7 Internet Debate. You can participate live while watching the streaming.

Even when facebook provided the privacy features there was still scope for problems...
