Schmidt's, google's director, has recently shared with the wall street magazine () that people should be able to change their name when they reach adulthood in order to separate themselves from all sensitive data and silly stuffy they published via social media sites during their youth age. But there was a way of critiques that in couple of years from now it will not be probably difficult to link new name with your previous profile so it is hardly way out from privacy threats. Moreover i doubt it is only youth age when you do silly stuff online.<br />Much more interesting seems to be privacy protection proposal which builds on the contextual nature of digital identity. E.g people have multiply identities and which one you need select/reveal to represent yourselves (name, location, age, social-demographics, etc.) depends on the context, for example when you interact online with a bank vs. social network of people with similar interests vs. family. So you should be able to disclose only as much of your identity as necessary (more on this can be read here http://blog.mozilla.com/ladamski/2010/07/contextual-identity/).

According to what I understand so far, right to accountability include right to forget, for example the right for an adult to delete all the internet activities s/he did when s/he was young, if he think that it can damage his present image. But I’m sure you will agree with me that anyone can make a use of it. So I think this is a kind of self-accountability.<br />But accountability can also come from the service supplier who must be able to track all the way in which your information has been stored. They have the responsibility to tell us where our data are when we delete them and if they are really gone.<br />It means also the right to give consent for a given period only. May be we are heading towards a situation where our information will be self-destroying starting from an expiration date set by the subscriber.<br />But accountability is also the responsibility of the government, and all the people who are dealing with data. They should know that when we provide a data when registering for our identity card for instance, those data should not be used for another purpose. In the same way, they should communicate with us in advance on all the use they intend to do of the data we provide them. Hope this help..

Was also thinking, concepts of privacy have changed tremendously over the decades - but has legislation? And how much are these concepts and legislation following one specific culture's concept of privacy and personal rights. What has been our contribution as feminists when we make that which was considered private both public and political, like VAW? Very thought provoking post, Francoise, thanks
