Off the grid: Is anonymity possible?

A session at FSCONS 2011

Sunday 13th November, 2011

5:15pm to 6:00pm (CET)

The discussions on the right to privacy have been active for over a century, with contributions from lawyers, ethicists, regulators and authors. The discussion revolves mainly around the conflict between humanity and technology in relation to rights, convenience and order – and has resulted in various attempts to regulate the state in relation to the individual. However, two important, and recent, shifts have turned this discussion on its head and fundamentally erased much of the progress in individual rights made in the last century. These shifts in technology and state require a radical re-thinking of the privacy debate and the future of privacy.
