Privacy Isn't Dead, or At Least It Shouldn't Be: A Q&A with Latanya Sweeney

coderman: "So in one class the instructor says, "The way I remembered the resistor [color codes] when I was a lad at M.I.T. was the following: 'Black boys rape only young girls but Violet gives willingly." -- uh, WTF?
coderman: "And now you are head of the Data Privacy Lab at Carnegie Mellon University. Why did you create it?"
coderman: "One day I was in grad school and [in my research] I came across this letter that roughly said: at the age of two the patient was sexually molested, at the age of three she stabbed her sister with scissors, at the age of four, her parents got divorced, at the age of five she set fire to her home."
coderman: "And then I realized there was nothing in that description that [would be changed by] scrubbing out identifiable information. I'll bet you there's only one person with that experience. And that made me realize that identifiability is really fascinating..."
coderman: "[Earlier in my career] I had learned that if I had the date of birth, gender and a five-digit zip code of a person, I could identify 87 percent of the people in the United States. So even if you don't give me your social security number, I can find out who you are nearly nine out of 10 times." - nice
coderman: "My answer is that the privacy problems that I've seen are probably best solved by the person who first created the technology. What we really have to do is train engineers and computer scientists to design and build technologies in the right kind of way from the beginning." - AMEN!
