The issue of privacy on the internet (and beyond) has been the big talking point in the media the past week or so. It's a nuanced debate and one that's hard to succinctly sum up in a half page comic but I wanted to give something a go. I wanted to focus on the odd disconnect between the way we spend our lives revealing more and more of ourselves online versus the outrage of finding out that none of it is safe from governments. I don't mean to suggest it's naive to expect your emails to remain private or that we shouldn't be shocked by these revelations, but I am interested by what we already choose to reveal to strangers and how our ideas of privacy are changing.
As always with these comics, they are designed to be conversation starters more than they are immovable, monolithic opinions which must be agreed with.
