Privacy is one of the most urgent issues associated with information technologies and digital media. In her new book, Privacy in Context: Technology, Policy, and the Integrity of Social Life (Stanford UP), Helen Nissenbaum argues that what people really care about is not that information about them is shared - this is crucial for social life — but that it is shared inappropriately. Her book develops a theory of appropriate sharing and explains some of the ways digital technologies have threatened this.
