Paul Saffo on the Privacy Debate

   Posted by: dhcsoul   in Privacy

Your first time here? Welcome, I'm glad you've dropped in.... David Soul (aka Bricoleur)

Saffo analyzes waning privacy among all citizens of the world and discuss the danger of privacy becoming a priviledge of the elite.

Perhaps the best line though comes at the very start of the interview, almost as a throw away driven by the interviewers opening remark:

“… well you know, the terrorist aspect and the war aspect,  no… our collective intelligence in this country drops 20 IQ points whenever we’re at war and then when the war ends we usually come back to our senses…. now its a little troublesome cause this one shows no sign of ending so maybe we never get those 20 points back.”
