NPR on the end of privacy

NPR’s All Things Considered is running a 4-part series on privacy issues in the modern digital era. Since I’ve started working on privacy research (specifically related to privacy in machine learning problems and in medical databases) these popular news stories are a good insight into how people in general think about privacy. The first segment is on data companies and their increasing lack of disclosure, and today’s was mostly about facebook. I’m looking forward to the rest of it — I’ve already had one or two nebulous research ideas, which is always a nice feeling.
