In an op-ed for The New York Times, Rochester Institute of Technology Assistant Professor Josephine Wolff writes that U.S. citizens are in a bind when it comes to their "expectation of privacy" under the Fourth Amendment. Wolff said she finds the unconscious lack of privacy expectation "unsettling" as technology evolves. "Today, our ideas about what is — and what should be — private are changing fast. As we routinely hand over more and more information about ourselves, our communications, our locations and our activities to tech companies, predicating our legal privacy protections on what we expect, rather than what we think people deserve or have a right to, is deeply problematic," Wolff writes. In another op-ed for the NYT, former Google Head of Communications Jessica Powell writes about the crumbling connection between big tech companies and their users.
