What should be private? As citizens , we expect our government to gather enough information to protect us but what do they really do with the information? This group was concerned about the government’s potential misuse of it’s citizens private information and did not feel empowered to do anything about it. In addition to the government, this group was concerned about Google and the ability to track all of one’s activities through the internet. It was scary to the group to think that every move one makes can be monitored or traced. At the same time, we rely on these same data collection mechanisms to stop someone planning to cause harm to anyone.
