Privacy is relative. As our world becomes increasingly digitized and monitored, our attitudes toward privacy should evolve beyond just app settings and encryption. We can’t make the best choices for ourselves or our kids if we haven’t thought about what privacy really means to us.
Most privacy conversations are framed by compliance and focus on technical solutions. This conversation takes a different, more fundamental approach: regardless of current regulations and technology, what do we want to keep private and why? This essential question transcends hollow concepts like “personally identifiable information” to explore more meaningful beliefs along the spectrum of “informational intimacy.”
Warm-up (15 minutes) - Individual reflection on the guiding question: what does privacy mean to you? (5 minutes) - Facilitated debrief: participants are asked to share their reflections with the group; presenters will create a shared record on the board (10 minutes).
Documentation and co-creation (20 minutes) - The matrix will be an open Google Sheet. Presenters will facilitate an amendment process to the matrix based on input from participants. - Participants will be encouraged to make a copy for their personal customization and use within their family, classroom, school, etc.
