Nearly every day we are told that our privacy is under some fresh attack. But are we entering a new and treacherous phase in our relationship with privacy, or should we welcome, as some have recommended, a new “era of transparency?” Join ACLU attorney (and Edward Snowden’s lawyer) Ben Wizner, the Guardian Project’s Harlo Holmes, philosopher Michael P. Lynch, the Nation’s Sarah Leonard, and artist Ingrid Burrington for a discussion of such questions in connection with The Point’s Issue 9 symposium, What Is Privacy For?
