We live our lives in public more and more. Most of us use many forms of social media every day that send rich information about us out to strangers. And strangers, for better and worse, seek lots of information about us without our specific assent. Every stroke of the key on our computers and mobile devices is recorded and available for people with the know-how to analyze. Is there any meaning to the word “privacy” anymore? How can we protect our information to keep ourselves safe, to avoid it being improperly used, to maintain control over our lives? These are the questions we will discuss at the BU Forum on “Problems of Privacy in Our Day-to-Day Lives.” Pizza and refreshments will be served.
