ET Speaker Series Janet Vertesi, Princeton University: "Just Opt Out?": The Hidden Trade-Offs in Personal Data Ownership

Wednesday, 11 December 2019: 10:00am PT / 1:00pm ET / 8:00pm UT

Location: Mozilla Mountain View + broadcast on [Airmo]

Abstract: This talk reviews seven years’ worth of personal experiments aimed at opting out of data detection and platforms associated with the personal data economy online -- from keeping a pregnancy hidden from the internet to building your own cell phone. As technology companies shrug that if we don’t like their data policies we can “just opt out,” I question how realistic this assumption truly is. Can anyone just opt out and yet maintain an active digital lifestyle? And which hidden tradeoffs must we make in order to simply evade detection? As the experiments range from inconvenient to ridiculous to potentially dangerous, I present design and ethical implications for the next generation of tools that support radical data ownership online. The fact that most people stay on these platforms despite their discontent reveals that opting out is much more difficult than it seems.

Speakers

The limit is 3 minutes per topic. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation. If you plan on showing a video, you need to contact the Air Mozilla team before the day of the meeting or you will be deferred to the next week. The meeting is streamed in a 4:3 format in order to allow for split screen. If your slides are 16:9 "widescreen" format, please indicate in the "Sharing" column below.

Welcome!

Let's say hello to some new Mozillians! If you are not able to join the meeting live, you can add a link to a short video introducing yourself.
