re: Privacy Ages Well


Great point, Craig.


People in their 20s just aren't as worried about privacy because they don't have as much to lose. That does change with age. We all go from hating "The Man" to becoming him, especially when you wake up one day and realize that other people's salaries rely heavily on how you do your job.


I also think there's something to the theory of hiding in plain sight. One reason I'm not as worried about posting things online now is that, seriously, who besides the five or six people I know personally is really paying attention? Sure, a lot of things I post are "public" but only a lunatic or an HR administrator would ever take the time to look it all up.

Phil,


I note your terrorist cell markers in about the 30th row of the picture...but to the actual topic.


Craig,


I think there is some truth to what you say.  Sort of like the statement (I think it was Churchill) that if you were not a liberal at 20 you have no heart and a conservative at 40 you have no brain.  I also think that the Internet is different than past mechanisms.  Before it was basically impossible to mechanize theft.  Now it is (see Nigerian Scams for a simple example).  That means theft scales beyond a person and his/her ability to steal.

Thanks, seven. Yes, the Internet does have clear differences -- in its ability for mass scale, and its permanency. For a lot of people, I think the permanency part still hasn't fully sunk in.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
