“I’ve done nothing wrong”
One common answer when talking to people about privacy is, “But I’ve done nothing wrong, I have nothing to hide.”
I’ve tried flippant, “If you have nothing to hide, then you don’t have a life.” I’ve tried serious, “The problem is aggregation and a lack of control on subsequent use.”
At best, the response has been a polite smile.
When I therefore came across this essay, ‘I’ve Got Nothing to Hide’ and Other Misunderstandings of Privacy, I was delighted. Finally, I’ve seen the light.
An absolute must read.
The bonus is a whole new perspective on privacy, one that is more Franz Kafka than George Orwell.
