Jeff Jarvis: We have plenty of privacy advocates. I want to be a publicness advocate.
Jeff Jarvis (Who wrote What Would Google Do?) have a new book called: Public Parts (soon will be published).
The book is about the end of privacy and the benefits of publicness.
In Public Parts, Jarwis will argue (http://www.buzzmachine.com/) that in our current privacy mania we are not talking enough about the value of publicness.
“If we default to private, we risk losing the value of the connections the internet brings: meeting people, collaborating with them, gathering the wisdom of our crowd, and holding the powerful to public account. Yes, I believe we have a right and need to protect our privacy — to control our information and identities — but I also want the conversation and our decisions to include consideration of the value of sharing and linking. I also want to protect what’s public as a public good; that includes our internet. We have plenty of privacy advocates. I want to be a publicness advocate”
