The following is a write up of my notes I prepared for an appearance on the BBC World Service show Culture Shock about the state of privacy (Monday Oct 9 2006). Some of this is based on PSFK.com reader comments left here. This article includes my first version of Red Coat, Black Coat – a story I hope to develop with help from feedback here and elsewhere to describe the options we have regarding a privacy-free future.

Privacy seems to have been an ongoing concern for a while now – but it’s only recently have I noticed people make positive thoughts about the future. For the vast majority of us, we’re a little naïve about the vast amount of information that has been gathered about us – and it’s only when there’s a slip – like AOL’s release of the search records of 650,000 users – that we get reminded about privacy.
