Notes from the Electronic Cottage 4/29/10

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

Location based services – neat things that happen when service providers like Yahoo or Google or Foursquare know where you are at any given moment – can be very cool and convenient. But as a new web site called “Please Rob Me” (pleaserobme.com) points out, they can also tell very undesirable characters that you’re not home. This is only one example of how privacy is changing in our digital world, a good topic of conversation during the first national  Choose Privacy Week (www.privacyrevolution.org) sponsored by the American Library Association. It’s happening May 2-8, and may be happening at your local library. If privacy, or its demise, concerns you, join in the conversation.
