Goodbye Privacy Symposium III

Goodbye Privacy - Welcome Publicity?

What role does the “new public life” play? Are the tools that allow people to publicize themselves also giving rise to a critical public? Or is it rather the case that in blogs full of personal shock and dismay, the political is simply being overwhelmed by the private and the I-stream is becoming mainstream? Web 2.0 entrepreneurs, media theorists and activists, sociologists, artists and hackers will discuss life in the aftermath of privacy’s demise.
