Queer Privacy - Sarah Jamie Lewis
How do you design an app which protects privacy? Yes, yes, I know "your privacy is important to us" - but that has always been a lie. For most of us a privacy breach means changing your password and dealing with an uptick in spam. For some people, a privacy breach could be personally and professionally devastating.
This short volume doesn't make many concrete suggestions - but it is an excellent starting point in how to consider a marginalised community when designing services.
My favourite quote comes from the introduction:
Privacy is the right to withdraw consent, to only provide information to the people you want to provide it to, when you want to provide it.
I don't know if we can ever achieve pretty good privacy - let alone perfect privacy - but that doesn't mean we can't try.
