We have a responsibility to protect our privacy in the digital age. Now, I’m not excusing the role of institutions in this human rights issue, but while they navigate the rocky landscape thrown up by the digital world, we need to get real about how to live responsibly with our data.

Tomorrow’s episode of The Guardian’s investigation of privacy in the digital age sees me trying to take back control after information is released into the wild – without prior consent or knowledge.

Several years ago, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg famously announced, “Privacy is Dead!”. The internet age, he said, has shifted social norms. We no longer care about protecting our identities. And it doesn’t matter if we do, because it’s too late to do anything about that, right?

The team at bTween 3D, an event in London in July, are curating a series of blog posts and videos from various people in the technology scene about the idea of 3D media. No, not the kind you have to watch through special glasses, but immersive and interactive media – from games to web to augmented reality.

I’ve had quite a year. One of the highlights of 2010 was most certainly being invited to SciFoo, a gathering of science and tech geeks for a weekend of in-person networking and knowledge sharing. I got to know some of the greatest minds out there, and was suitably awed by the opportunity to meet John Cacioppo, one half of the theoretical team whose Elaboration Likelihood Model of Persuasion formed the backbone of my PhD research. Yes, I am geek.

I was invited by Margaret Robertson, Head of Development at the magnificently creative Hide and Seek pervasive play group, to deliver a five minute talk on something that delighted me to the participants of Wonderlab, their three day game design workshop. Not being as familiar with the oeuvre of computer and videogames as I once was, and being all too aware that the eminent people in the room knew just as much about the delightful and playful technologies that currently populate the more interesting corners of the World Wide Web, I chose instead to cram in three offline experiences I’ve recently had that all revel in the glorious and delicious moment of anticipation just before something wonderful and expectedly unexpected happens.

For the next week, you can catch my appearance on last night’s BBC’s current affairs programme Newsnight with author Clay Shirky, debating the social implications of new technology. It was a great discussion that was overwhelmingly positive about the Web and what it offers, but there were a few sticking points where Clay and I disagreed. I’ll expand on the key one here.

Over the past 14 weeks, Digital Revolution has placed me in front of some of the most important protagonists in the Web’s 20 year story: the founding fathers and mothers, the movers and the shakers, the newsmakers and the naysayers. I’ve had the unparalleled opportunity to interview every one, often for more than an hour. Like I’ve died and gone to post-PhD heaven, I tell you.

One of the results of my recent interview with British comedian, author, actor and all around polymath Stephen Fry for the four-part BBC Digital Revolution series was a little video in which we tried on several of the titles the production team is trying on for size. Have a look. Several people on Twitter think we should have scones and cups of tea.
