, , Leave a comment

Private Life: The Paradox of the Digital Age is a new video series that explores online privacy, and whether we have any left.

In partnership with The Walrus, rdigitaLIFE is hosting a Twitter chat on Tuesday, Nov. 26th from 7:30pm to 8:00pm EST  to offer  a glimpse of the range of topics covered in the series.

Some of the questions we will be asking are:

  • What does privacy mean to you?
  • How is social media changing the coming of age process? How do we teach consent?
  • Does protecting our security mean the end of digital privacy?
  • What is the value of anonymity?

In Private Life: The Paradox of the Digital Age, we talk to many experts for their insights on online privacy. Here’s a list of participants who are featured in the series who will also be joining in the Twitter chat:
