"Friends don’t let friends get spied on.' – Richard Stallman, President of the Free Software Foundation and longtime advocate of privacy in technology.

Privacy in a Digital World

The intensive collection of data and the inherent advantages of the new technology have spawned the cynical idea that privacy is dead, and we might as well just get used to that fact. However, Tehilla-Shwartz Altshuler disagrees. Tehilla is a Senior Fellow and head of the Democracy in the Information Age Program at the Israel Democracy Institute.

In an article in the TechCrunch web site, Tehilla describes three aspects of the right to privacy that have become especially relevant in the digital world. She also demonstrates that not only is privacy still alive and kicking, but also that we should treat it with the respect it deserves as the most important of all human rights in the digital world.
