Facebook and Unintended Consequences

Laurent Liscia, OASIS CEO, blogs:
...I'm calling for a real, open and transparent standard for identity and privacy, one that we can all agree on: vendors and end-users that keep us apprised of what happens to our information, tells us in real-time what we're about to do, and keeps us safe and shielded from prying eyes if that's what we prefer...In 1999, Stephen Manes quoted McNealy as saying, 'You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it.' Manes criticized the statement in his Full Disclosure column: 'He's right on the facts, wrong on the attitude... Instead of 'getting over it', citizens need to demand clear rules on privacy, security, and confidentiality.' Read the full blog.
