Presentation Title Privacy, Secrecy, Freedom and Power
Presentation Abstract

Technological advances have both diminished and enhanced the ability to keep information private, but 
on balance have challenged privacy more than strengthened it. As a result, the law has been under pressure 
to play an increasing role in protecting secrecy, whether in class action lawsuits or national security 
prosecutions. But the law is a dull tool, so we are living through a kind of information anarchy now where 
transgressions are both rampant and over-punished.

The exhilaration of lawlessness seen in groups like Anonymous, LulzSec and the #AntiSec Movement are giving 
way to potentially authoritarian crackdowns, which themselves are both dangerous and lawless. This talk 
tracks these trends and asks what role hackers and other activists should play in the privacy/security/
transparency debate.
