As part of the University of Washington’s Tech Policy Lab Lecture series, LaTanya Sweeney, Harvard professor and editor-in-chief of the new journal Technology Science, spoke to a packed Kane Hall last week about life in our ever-evolving technocracy, where we can be monitored on the job, in the street, on our keyboards, while we shop, and while we sleep.
By default and by degrees, technology designers have become policymakers. Sweeney sees privacy and security as only the first wave of issues that policymakers will have to attend to. Well worth a viewing. Thanks to Mike McCormick for the video.
