How privacy is transforming technology and policy
Rather than presuming that privacy is being transformed by technological change, or policy change, lets shift our view and look at how privacy is also changing technology and policy. Policies that we previously considered inevitable have shifted, some technologies that were to be widespread have been avoided in favour of others. The political economy of technology is quite different from what we had all imagined, and privacy is a large reason for this situation.
