Location and privacy: Join the conversation

New
GPS technologies like Facebook Places, Foursquare, Twitter, and others can
track, analyze, and share our movements in the public sphere.

But
what are the privacy implications?

Will
we be expected to take responsibility for our own locational privacy and
reputation? What role will the government play in protecting our privacy,
without severely hampering the economic potential of this market? What
privacy-enhancing technologies are emerging that will enable consumers to
choose how their personal information is shared?

On
January 26, 2011, Microsoft is sponsoring a panel discussion, hosted by the Churchill
Club
, about the emerging concerns with locational privacy. If you live or will
