Vote for CitizenMe to bring the privacy debate to SXSW 737 407 StJohn Deakins

We want consumer privacy issues to take centre stage at next year’s SXSW Interactive – but we need your vote to make it happen!


CitizenMe is teaming up with some of the leading voices in the industry to form an important panel to further the tech privacy debate with our proposed session:

Creepy or Cool: Privacy Risks and Social Norms

Together with our fellow panelists from NYU School of Law/Data & Society Research Institute, Center for Democracy and Technology and the International Association of Privacy Professionals, we’ll discuss privacy issues, new technology and how businesses can successfully navigate the cool/creepy divide when it comes to consumer privacy.

Please vote for our session before 6th September to help us secure a place on the agenda.

Your input contributes to the final decision on programming for SXSW 2015, with the remainder of the decision coming from SXSW advisory board and staff input.

If you’re planning to head out to Texas in March for SXSW, don’t forget toregister by September 12 to get the best rate.

Thanks for your support!

StJohn founded CitizenMe with the aim to take on the biggest challenge in the Information Age: helping digital citizens gain control of their digital identity. Personal data has meaning and value to everyone, but there is an absence of digital tools to help people realise its value. With CitizenMe, StJohn aims to fix that. With a depth of experience digitising and mobilising businesses, StJohn aims for positive change in the personal information economy. Oh… and he loves liquorice.
