pii: Publicness with Jeff Jarvis
Jeff Jarvis gave a great talk on the value of being open. I love what Jeff has done with his online presence, he talks about many personal things in his life online at buzzmachine.
My favorite slide from his presentation was on Digital Rights here is Jeff’s Digital Bill of Rights:
A Bill of Rights in Cyberspace
I. We have the right to connect.
II. We have the right to speak.
III. We have the right to speak in our languages.
IV. We have the right to assemble.
V. We have the right to act.
VI. We have the right to control our data.
VII. We have the right to our own identity.
VIII. What is public is a public good.
IX. The internet shall be built and operated openly.
Critic: My only negative here is that he does not deal well unpopular ideas facts. Jeff argues that taboos will fade with more information about people. This sounds good until it is you that losses a job or worse.
