I think the funniest things are the most observant. I also think there’s power in changing your perspective. I also believe that privacy, at its core, is an interdisciplinary subject, best digested when considered something more than a “law thing.” I’m also convinced that we learn best when our guards are down. Laughter does that. And that's why The Privacy Empress blog exists. That’s why I am so excited to be at the helm of the Privacy Empress GIF blog. Inspired by the inaugural site of this type, whatshouldwecallme, this little endeavor is my attempt to imbue the privacy landscape with just a wee more cheekiness, all the while pointing readers to interesting and topical articles that inform the good ole fashioned way. I’ll be reacting to a handful of privacy- and data protection-related headlines with a GIF or two, each cycle of The Privacy Advisor. Check back to this hub for updates, but don’t forget to explore the full tumblr blog to catch up on any posts you may have missed. -- The Privacy Empress 


October hasn't even started and these headlines got me feeling ~*spooky*~ .  I mean, let's talk about the "even-worse-than-we-thought" bit coming out of  new reports surrounding the 2012 Yahoo breach. And that, my friends, is just the tip of this month's iceberg. Enjoy an assortment of  my most recent reactions below, but don't forget to check out the full Tumblr blog here, which functions as a sort of Director's Cut™ of privacy GIF madness. 

Feeling creative? Send your own GIF reactions my way. Besides, word on the street is that teamwork makes the dream work.
