Choose Privacy Week: Day 2

Friday, May 2:

Choose Privacy Week, May 1-7, 2014, is a time to advocate for privacy rights and to examine how we can protect ourselves against threats to these rights.

During our second day of Choose Privacy Week, we invite you to view this documentary, Choose Privacy Week  featuring youth, parents, librarians, and citizens discussing privacy in a digital age, with commentary by author Neil Gaiman and constitutional law scholar Geoffrey Stone of the University of Chicago.

Online searches can uncover information about ourselves that we may not want public. The searches themselves can become public knowledge and tracked to the searcher.  We as a society should consider what the boundaries to privacy are. The illusion of privacy must be recognized and acknowledged. This documentary discusses these issues and encourages our awareness of privacy issues on the internet.
