As we witness our society racing ahead with surveillance-enabling sensors and platforms (tools) in the spirit of competitive advantage, this unstoppable momentum can easily drive one into an apathetic perspective when thinking about privacy and civil liberties, freedom of motion and anonymity.

A few months back I authored a post entitled, “Responsible Innovation: Designing for Human Rights,” which introduces some thinking along this line. I am also hopeful that technologies such as Analytics in the Anonymized Data Space and Immutable Audit Logs will further contribute in this area. (via Jeff Jonas: Ubiquitous Sensors?
