Nothing to Hide in 25 Pages or Less

Category: Academic,Privacy,Tech — Biella @ 7:43 pm

I am excited to read I’ve Got Nothing to Hide” and Other Misunderstandings of Privacy by Daniel Solove and I am also excited of its “short” length, mostly because I reckon I can use this for undergraduate teaching (and will perhaps include it when I teach some version of this in the future).

I place short in scare quotes because I don’t think a 25 single spaced article is really all that short though it is flagged as such in the abstract. But given this is a law journal article, which tend to trail into the 75-100 page range (and thus out of reach for most undergraduate teaching), it is indeed tiny. I am in the lookout for more law journal articles that are under 30 pages as I find them to be quite useful in the classroom…


  1. Looks interesting. I’ve just printed this and will try to read it in a bit of downtime.

  3. Thanks for pointing out that paper!

    I’ve read about two thirds through it by now, and it inspired me to write my next article in a local political magazine about the subject.

  4. Another short privacy essay/article that is good for teaching is Kang & Buchner’s “Privacy in Atlantis”
