GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 28th August at noon SLT: Privacy, good idea or bad for ID?

Let’s discuss why governments and companies want to have all our data, all our histories, all our tweets.

Are you in more danger from your government or from Facebook or Twitter?  If you spend more time on social media and in virtual worlds than you do on the street then maybe social media are more dangerous.  In the Facebook world you are always known wherever you are, while in some countries you do not have to carry ID.  On the other hand, Facebook cannot kill you, not yet.

How do we take back our data once we have released it to the world?  What dangers do we face from making it all public?  Is there hope for our privacy?  Is privacy valuable?

"He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.”  Do you agree?

Come and discuss the problem.  Don’t worry about bringing your ID.  We know who you are.  Bring your friends with all their data.

All your data belongs to us! Who is listening? And should we worry? Saturday 29th August at noon SLT

So much data is collected about all of us.  What is it used for?  Is it an invasion of privacy?  Does it make you angry?  Will all humans eventually get sick and tired of all the spying?  Will the Big Five data collectors, Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google, cease to exist?

Or do you think they should use the data to give you information you really need?  Like what colour the flowers you buy for your mother on her birthday should be.  Or what sort of job you should take. Or who you should marry.  Would you listen?  Or would you find it creepy?
Can we ever get our privacy back?  Is there a way to escape the panopticon we all live in?  If you do escape, how long will you be safe from the ever-seeing Eye?  Come and join the discussion.  Turn off your phone and wrap it in tinfoil.  And bring your non-friends to confuse the system.
