Transcript

  • 1. Casual Privacy “ a design pattern for sharing non-public information using out-of-band exchange of unguessable tokens.” because most privacy isn’t worth it.
  • 2.
    • Privacy is more trouble then its worth right now. Some people share in public, some people give up.
    How to do we get more people to share more information, and more interesting information? Is there information you’re sharing more widely right now then you feel comfortable with? Is there information you’d share with more people if it was easy that you don’t want to tell GoogleBot? Assertion: Open Questions:
  • 3. Current Privacy Options 1. Share Nothing 2. Share Everything 3. Manage a crowd
  • 4. Everything Private Sucks
    • Lonely!
    • No wisdom of the crowds
    • Web 1.0!
    • We’d all be out of jobs!
  • 5. Share Everything?
    • Default Web 2.0 assumption (Flickr, del.icio.us, Upcoming, Twitter)
    • Not everyone can, will
    • On Flickr people want to share (privately)
    • Kids
    • Home
    • Weddings
    • Last nights party
  • 6. Sharing: Because it works!
    • Outboard brain
    • Wisdom of crowds
    • Serendipity enhancement
    • More valuable then privacy?
  • 7. Manage a crowd
    • “ Traditional” approach
    • Contacts + Roles
    • Complex
    • Cognitive burden
    • also: ego, anxiety, social pressure, attractive nuisance.
    friend, family, contact, acquaintance, met, co-worker, colleague, co-resident, neighbor, child, parent, sibling, spouse, kin, muse, crush, date, sweetheart, me, friend, family, contact, acquaintance, met, co-worker, colleague, co-resident, neighbor, child, parent, sibling, spouse, kin, muse, crush, date, sweetheart, me, friend, family, contact, acquaintance, met, co-worker, colleague, co-resident, neighbor, child, parent, sibling, spouse, kin, muse, crush, date, sweetheart, me, friend, family, contact, acquaintance, met, co-worker, colleague, co-resident, neighbor, child, parent, sibling, spouse, kin, muse, crush, date, sweetheart, me, acquaintance, met, co-worker, colleague, co-resident, neighbor, child, parent, sibling, spouse, kin, muse, crush, date, sweetheart, me, friend, family, contact, quasi-friend, sort-a-friend, weird-uncle, kith, annoying ex-roomate
  • 8. Account proliferation!
    • Contact based approach, everyone needs an account.
    • Use ~14 sites roughly daily all designed to share.
    • Small pieces loosely joined hurts now
  • 9.
    • “ a design pattern for sharing non-public information using out-of-band exchange of unguessable tokens.”
