He's right!

Privacy is not an Option

Software developers need to look at privacy the same way we've learned to look at security: it's not an add-on or a feature that customers have to turn on, it's something built-in that shouldn't be turned off.

on 'data co-ownership'

Exploiting Privacy Policy Conflicts in Online Social Networks

Online Social Networks (OSNs) offer access control mechanisms to protect users' sensitive information from undesired accesses. Yet, their information is still vulnerable to disclosure when their friends assign conflicting privacy policies: a user prohibits everyone from accessing his own content or profile but his friends allow others to see it...

Our short-term goal is to pioneer a new form of participatory journalism, grounded in the simple human stories behind major news events and universal themes. Our long-term goal is to build a public library of human experience, so the knowledge and wisdom we accumulate as individuals may live on as part of the commons, available for this and future generations to look to for guidance.

'weirdly unsocial' networks

The Social Graph is Neither

Social networks exist to sell you crap. The icky feeling you get when your friend starts to talk to you about Amway, or when you spot someone passing out business cards at a birthday party, is the entire driving force behind a site like Facebook.

'some other purpose'

Why I'd never work for Google, Twitter, or Facebook

Google+ isn't about sharing cat pictures, it's about serving ads. Twitter's massive network of 140-character bits of information isn't about connecting people across the globe or to view current trends in worldwide thinking, it's about serving ads. Facebook isn't about entertaining yourself with games or sharing interesting links, it's about serving ads.
