TED Talk “Why Privacy Matters”
Greenwald, Glen (2014): "Why Privacy matters", Ted Talk vom 10. Oktober.
Talk by journalist Glenn Greenwald, presented at a TED conference in 2014. This critical big data literacy tool emphasises the importance of privacy in an appealing manner for an audience without any previous knowledge. It uses various real-life examples and metaphors and aims to promote critical reflection of the general system of big data collection and analysis. It also gives a brief theoretical grounding of privacy (history of surveillance, panopticon). However, being from 2014, some information may be outdated.
