Davos Panel Prep: "What was Privacy"

Next week I return to the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

In 2004 when I wrote about Bloggers breaching the gates of Davos, I took this photo of Loic Le Meur, Yat Siu and Joi Ito, now all good friends.

A great turnout of world leaders is expected at this year’s Davos and – given the parlous state of the world – this year’s meeting will be particularly interesting.

It is an honor to attend and I am delighted to participate in a number of panels, including one on privacy, for which I am scrambling to get some good ideas.

Loic, the founder of Seesmic, will lead the panel and started a posting on the topic.

Other participants include:

Reid Hoffman, Chairman and President, LinkedIn Corporation, USA
Tom Ilube, Chief Executive Officer, Garlik, United Kingdom
Jeff Jarvis, Blogger and Professor, Buzzmachine.com, USA
David W. Kenny, Managing Partner, VivaKi, USA
Diarmuid Martin, Archbishop of Dublin, Ireland

With a story on Google’s GDrive (coming in 2009), I started feeding a Delicious tag privacy.

Are there special privacy attitudes prevalent in Asia? I am thinking about the Japanese blogger Akky Akimoto, who refused to show his face while being interviewed.

Ideas welcome!!
