The discussion about privacy and the right to be found or not found led me to do a little more investigation on the topic. Jeff Jarvis has recently published a book on this subject matter titled Is Privacy Overrated?. The Forbes online article provides an overview of the book, which examines privacy bills passed by the Obama administration in order to protect online rights. I think the author does well to play devil's advocate when promoting the benefits of social interconnectivity as well as the downfall of sensitive information being available in the public domain. Outside of the government, designer's will help shape the discoverability of personal information and help create filters and access privileges, so that information is shared within the proper context. We will help shape, a so to speak, global Facebook privacy setting.
