Abstract: Abstract. This book chapter reflects the content of one of the 2017 IFIP summer school’s workshops. This workshop’s focus was chiefly around whether one should forget about privacy as a basic human right. The challenge was proferred that today’s commercial push for free trade in people’s data, supported by information technologies, requires counterbalancing efforts to be made from the public interest point of view. This preoccupation with public interest was addressed, during the course of the workshop, through a number of different questions and the discussions that they inspired. Each of these five questions/topics is handled in a separate section of the book chapter. These five points are illustrated through images and illustrations, often drawn from works from the fields of art, education, ethics, film, literature, and philosophy. The workshop itself was co-led by members of the International Federation of Information Processing (IFIP)’s working group on social accountability and computing.
