[HCI] [Privacy] [Ubicomp] Rant on Ubicomp and Privacy

I was invited to give a research talk at Intel's Usable Privacy form last week,
over in Hillsboro, Oregon. I decided to give a rant on ubicomp and privacy.

My main points:
  • We should push client-centered ubicomp more
    Local sensing, local storage, local processing
    Better user interfaces when sharing personal info

  • We should examine how people already manage their privacy today
    Better support for projecting desired personas
    Build plausible deniability in

  • We need better privacy risk models
    Rapid prototyping tools
    Analysis methods
    Metrics for privacy

  • We need better ways of aligning all stakeholders
    Figure out sustainable business models
    Support app developers
