Wikileaks: TMI--Too Much Information Sharing

Wikileaks:  TMI--Too Much Information Sharing

After 9/11, the government decided that more information sharing might prevent another 9/11, but now it looks like there was too much access to information.  This is another example of the tension between Access and Security.
Recall my categories from the early years of IE:

  • Access
  • Ownership
  • Privacy
  • Security
  • Community
These five cover most of the issues we deal with today and provide a good structure for discussion of most issues of interest today.  In addition to the Wikileaks, think about
  • Privacy and electronic medical records;
  • Security and genetic testing;
  • Cybercrime
  • Facebook privacy;
  • Digital democracy;
  • Protection of children on the Internet;
  • Internet research ethics;
  • Ethics of information professionals;
  • To be continued;
  • xxxxxxxxxx
  • xxxxxxxxxxxx
  • xxxxxxxxxxxx
