Privacy vs Transparency

the circleMandatory reading for my S5/S6 pupils! The Circle by Dave Eggers was a great read and would be a great way to trigger a debate with young students on the issue of privacy. The philosophy of publishing documents as Assange did with wiki-leaks, Snowdens disclosure of secret documents and social media in general (twitter, facebook) is all put into a propper perspective, a great start for an interesting debate on the matter with young people.
I enjoyed reading the book. Until recently I always valued my digital anonymity. Since I moved to a small island community I value even more my real live transparency!
