PRIVACY'S BLUEPRINT. The Battle to Control the Design of New Technologies. Woodrow Hartzog.

PRIVACY'S BLUEPRINT. The Battle to Control the Design of New Technologies.

Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 2018. First edition. Hardcover. Signed by the author on the title page. Every day, internet users interact with technologies designed to undermine their privacy. Social media apps, surveillance technologies, and the Internet of Things are all built in ways that make it hard to guard personal information. And the law says this is okay because it is up to users to protect themselves, even when the odds are deliberately stacked against them. Here, Hartzog pushed back against this state of affairs, arguing that the law should require software and hardware makers to respect privacy in the design of their products. Against the often self-serving optimism of Silicon Valley and the inertia of tech evangelism, Hartzog contends that privacy gains will come from better rules for products, not users.
