hey all,

i'm stef, i do care a lot about all kinds of conflicts between technology and
society, for the benefit of both. i'm quite active on the open data front, but
mostly as a user to protect human rights, like privacy. in this regard i'm a
bit confused about the initial blogpost and worried. could you please
elaborate this point of view of your proposal? thank you very much.

here's a few insights from manhack, french privacy advocate in this regard.

javier ruiz from the open rights group might also contribute to this
discussion, he has done extensive work on privacy aspects of open data.

germans have this "rule": "utilize public data, protect private data", yochai
benkler was quoted in a tweet about wikileaks:
   privacy=protection of weak from scrutiny by powerful. Transparency=exposure
   of powerful to scrutiny by weak.
