I had the privilege to be MC and speaker for an event supporting the privacy of young people growing up in the digital age.

On the panel were the Australian Information Commissioner and Australian Privacy Commissioner, the ‎Australian eSafety Commissioner at Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner, and 2 youth ambassadors. Great discussion!

My summing up is that a screen can mediate what we think is Ok to do and say online. The anonymity of technology can influence people and industry to act differently online; at times, less ethically and less caring. A key idea we discussed was that humanity and ethics are an important part of the privacy debate.

Thanks Timothy Pilgrim, Julie Inman Grant, and our 2 youth ambassadors for a great discussion
