Jasmine McNealy Comments on Digital Privacy
Jasmine McNealy, University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications Telecommunication associate professor, is quoted in “What the First Porta-Potty Can Teach Designers About Digital Privacy” published in Fast Company on Sept. 27.
The article focuses on how to control and design for privacy in the digital realm and how the nuances of privacy in different contexts and design experiences reflect its value.
“Physical and digital privacy are more closely aligned than different, but data is abstracted from a person or community,” explains McNealy. “Data privacy doesn’t have a body or tangible object to look at, which means we can’t necessarily imagine the harms.”
