Through this engaging mix of interactives, opinion articles and explainers, the NYT explores why privacy matters right now, and how we can shape technology to be a tool for privacy protection, not just encroaching on it.
Identity and privacy are closely intertwined, which is why this new series is such an important addition to the #GoodID discussion.
In a thoughtful structure to guide readers through the issues, the collection asks four big questions, under four key themes:
IDEAS: Does Privacy Matter?
BASICS: What Do They Know, and How Do They Know It?
DEBATE: What Should Be Done About This?
ACTION: What Can I Do?
The series concludes with a call to arms to end-users and consumers, to recognize the potential but also pitfalls of the smart phones, home devices, office systems that surround us, and to demand we assert our rights in protecting that privacy.
