BoingBoing mention of DSG spawned more thoughtful posts which I thought deserved a read:
- Of Privacy and Poop: Norm Enforcement Via the Blogosphere – [Daniel Solove at Balkinization]
- 1984 = S. Korea? – [Gene at Desert of the Mind]
- Re Internet Vigilantism – [Marcy Peek at PrawfsBlawg]
- Trying to redefine privacy in a transparent society – [Ari Soglin at Citizen Paine]
- Privacy and Innovation – [A Networked World]
And my own which I expect will create more problems.
Post Korean-War Korean culture is called Nambi Sahwae (Tinpot Society) by Koreans which means that things come to boil up and cool down too fast. This results in:
- short attention span
- hasty policy making
Internet and search engines together solved the short attention span problem but the second problem got worse because Korean politicians are now being pressure-cooked in minutes by the Net-savvy citizen into making policy changes.
