DeNovo Broome's comment, November 12, 2011 3:51 PM
"Getting a large dose of overly personal details from someone's life on Twitter or Facebook is nothing new. Plenty of people broadcast the content of arguments, share intimate details about their marriages, and even mourn the death of a loved one online. But usually those experiences are shared voluntarily. Most people get to decide for themselves which parts of their lives they want to share on social media.

But maybe the ubiquity of smart phones and new technologies, coupled with a decreasing respect for boundaries, has changed the equation. You no longer get to decide when to share. You don't even get to decide whether you want to use Twitter or Facebook. If you leave the house, you're on social media."

“Real Names” Policies Are an Abuse of Power

“Real Names” Policies Are an Abuse of Power | Persistent Identity | Scoop.it

"There is no universal context, no matter how many times geeks want to tell you that you can be one person to everyone at every point. But just because people are doing what it takes to be appropriate in different contexts, to protect their safety, and to make certain that they are not judged out of context, doesn’t mean that everyone is a huckster. Rather, people are responsibly and reasonably responding to the structural conditions of these new media. And there’s nothing acceptable about those who are most privileged and powerful telling those who aren’t that it’s OK for their safety to be undermined. And you don’t guarantee safety by stopping people from using pseudonyms, but you do undermine people’s safety by doing so.

Thus, from my perspective, enforcing “real names” policies in online spaces is an abuse of power."

Shaping the future - Charlie's Diary | Persistent Identity | Scoop.it

"Meet your descendants. They don't know what it's like to be involuntarily lost, don't understand what we mean by the word "privacy", and will have access (sooner or later) to a historical representation of our species that defies understanding. They live in a world where history has a sharply-drawn start line, and everything they individually do or say will sooner or later be visible to everyone who comes after them, forever. They are incredibly alien to us."

"Murky rules and seemingly arbitrary punishment is the hallmark of psychological abuse. Google is our alcoholic parent and we have to tiptoe around just hoping we won't get the belt."

MediaShift . Cameras Everywhere: The Promise and Peril for Human Rights | PBS | Persistent Identity | Scoop.it

When you hear the phrase "cameras everywhere" your first thought may be of ubiquitous surveillance cameras, watching your every move on behalf of the state, private businesses and corporations.

 

On second thought it may conjure up the hundreds of millions of cameras, mobile and Internet connections in the hands of ordinary citizens who are filming, sharing and remixing footage -- cameras that can act as powerful tools to push for positive human rights change.
