Tim O’Reilly Says You Should Give Up Some Privacy to Help Save the World
Big organizations have a lot of fear concerning peoples’ privacy, but book publisher, event organizer and industry luminary Tim O’Reilly thinks it’s time to reconsider our beliefs concerning personal information. "The old model of privacy isn’t taking into account any of the trade offs, and clearly people are willing to make those trade offs," he says. "Google maps on your phone sends your location to someone else’s server every time you look something up, for example." O’Reilly’s position on privacy is a very important one, at this point in history when the future of privacy is being debated.
