"Got nothing to hide" Law Review paper
« on: August 10, 2007, 10:25:18 am »

'I've Got Nothing to Hide' and Other Misunderstandings of Privacy
(PDF file downloadable through link at site.)

Quote
Abstract:     
In this short essay, written for a symposium in the San Diego Law Review, Professor Daniel Solove examines the nothing to hide argument. When asked about government surveillance and data mining, many people respond by declaring: I've got nothing to hide. According to the nothing to hide argument, there is no threat to privacy unless the government uncovers unlawful activity, in which case a person has no legitimate justification to claim that it remain private. The nothing to hide argument and its variants are quite prevalent, and thus are worth addressing. In this essay, Solove critiques the nothing to hide argument and exposes its faulty underpinnings.

It sure would be NICE to be able to read the paper in question WITHOUT having to join/register with GWU-L or SDU-L.

How does one expect to remain "unknown" If every other day one registers at yet another online data bank ?

How about "bringing" your personal copy out and placing it on the desk while you head down the hall to the restroom ?

Interested ? Very
BUT not enough to give up my ID/address to either data bank  .......

It should download directly to you

 SS DD *

I get the same page I got when I used the link ND put up.

Then when I click "download at ..." [name of download location] it refreshes the page but there is no download.

Yeah I'm pretty security conscious but I don't have this problem elsewhere.

How about cut and Paste ? It's only 236 k according to the info page. Or are they trying to say 236,000 mb ?






* SS DD  [same s*#t  different day] not exactly apropos but close.

Thank You ND   

That worked. I appreciate the "extra effort".  You too Dare 2, Thanks.

I also got a message telling me that I have an OLD version of Macromedia Flash.
Maybe that's the problem in the first place.

WHICH leads me to another pet peeve of mine ....[ I seem to have a lot of those when it comes to politics and computers ... Hmmm]
and that is that programers make the NEW IMPROVED version of their program unintelligible to the older version so you'll be FORCED to get the new one AND download the fixes/bulletins/updates/etc to make it safe to run, use, etc.    PITA
Grrrr

Highway robbery under the guise of technological advancement.  Patooie on the lot of them ......

"My new book ...."

Congratulations byron m.

I will have to make an effort to get a copy.
So I can help support another TMM brother and learn about privacy as well.
Maybe next paycheck.
