Next PdPlus Call: Jeff Jarvis on Publicness, Privacy and the Future of the Web
BY Micah L. Sifry | Wednesday, November 30 2011
We're looking forward to our next Personal Democracy Plus conference call on Thursday December 8 at 1pm ET, which will be with longtime PdF friend and prolific blogger, author and journalism professor Jeff Jarvis. We'll be discussing his new book Public Parts: How Sharing in the Digital Age Improves the Way We Work and Live. Some topics that just might come up:
- The Federal Trade Commission's just announced settlement with Facebook for its years of alleged privacy violations, and the company's efforts to turn "frictionless sharing" into an all-purpose enclosure of the Internet, which some are saying will "ruin" sharing;
- The differences between European and American attitudes towards sharing personal information online;
- The need for a new online "bill of rights" in the face of governments and corporations alike;
- The response to the book and to Jarvis's work from critics like Evgeny Morozov and Dean Starkman; and
To join in for will surely be a fun and provocative tour of the public/private horizon and the future of the web, register for this free call now.
