1:00: It's Not Paranoia If Your Tech Really Is Out To Get You: Critical Thinking About New Technologies
Nancy Sims

How many of the files you created ten years ago can you still access? Did you know that you could go to prison for using a pseudonym on some social networking sites? New and emerging technologies are exciting, and can make serious positive changes in our lives - but many new technologies also come with an array of down-sides and less-awesome requirements. The choices we make when adopting new technologies can have profound impacts on our own lives and those of our patrons in arenas as wide ranging as simple usability and ownership of intellectual property to constitutional rights such as privacy and freedom expression. Let's think critically about some of these issues.
