Privacy is dead, but not because Scott McNealy said so.

I decided to experiment with using Medium for a long-form not-quite technical post on the evolution of research in data privacy.
The idea of privacy has driven much of our concerns over data for the last few years, and has been the driver of extremely successful research efforts, most notably in differential privacy.What we’re seeing now though is a pivot away from the undifferentiated and problematic notion of privacy in data towards a more subtle and nuanced notion of how data is actually used, and how it should be used.

Here's the post: Medium allows this nifty way of commenting inline, so comment away there, or here.
