We've discussed in this list sometimes about the threats to privacy
that Social Networking sometimes entails... In our review of Future
Sonic '09, Ruth & I also started to consider whether the whole notion
of privacy wasn't already dated and we needed to find news ways to
address the pervasiveness of these platforms. This book might be of
interest to those that have been having similar ideas...

Beyond Privacy
New Notions of the Private and Public Domains
Privacy is a right that protects one’s private life, a right that is
not only established by law, but also has a political and a social
significance. It can be experienced and observed differently by
individuals and groups, depending upon their position in society and
the desires and interests that are involved.

In Open 19, the concept of privacy is examined and reconsidered from
the legal, sociological, media theoretical and activist perspectives.
The focus is not so much on deploring the loss of privacy, but taking
the present situation of ‘post-privacy’ for what it is and trying to
gain insight into what is on the horizon in terms of new
subjectivities and power constructions.
