My new paper „Why privacy is not enough privacy in the context of ‚ubiquitous computing‘ and ‚big data'“ is online and will appear in print in the Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society Vol. 12 Issue 2 later this year.
I disucss some of the new challenges that new technologies pose to prevailing concepts of privacy. In particular I argue that concepts of privacy that just focus on the relation of a single person and data about that person cannot grasp some of the most important issues. Thus we need a decidedly social and political perspective on privacy. I develop these thoughts in a critical discussion of Helen Nissenbaum’s concept of privacy as contextual integrity.
