Privacy in the Modern Age on Access Utah Thursday

May 9, 2013

  In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, we’ll ask you what the proper balance should be between privacy and security, between rights and safety.  We’re all glad, of course, that ubiquitous security and cell phone cameras helped in the rapid capture of the alleged perpetrators in Boston, but are you comfortable with the idea of surveillance cameras on every corner or the increasing ability of law enforcement and others to snoop into what used to be private areas of your life?  Are you willing to give up some privacy rights for increased safety? Do you worry your rights will be eroded? What should the rules be regarding these new technologies?

Our guests include Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank and our technology expert Jonathan Choate.
