As a child of the 80s the concept of how we consider and view privacy, I am increasingly realizing, is outdated and ‘so very last century’. As of this year I have lived more than half my life in this century and yet as technology consumes and propels most aspects of our lives I still think the right to privacy, intimate or otherwise, cannot and should not change. No matter how entrenched we choose to let technology become in our life, we should still expect that our most intimate selves remain private. This is what Danielle Keats Citron, renowned legal scholar and professor, underlines throughout her book The Fight for Privacy: Protecting Dignity, Identity and Love in the Digital Age.
