Woody Hartzog: Control is not the privacy solution it's made out to be

Speaking before the audience at the recent IAPP Data Protection Congress in Brussels, keynoter Woody Hartzog made a challenging assertion: "Control is the wrong goal for privacy by design, perhaps the wrong goal for data protection in general."

While everyone emphasizes "control" of personal data as core to privacy, too much zeal for control dilutes efforts to design information tech correctly. This idealized idea of control is impossible. Control is illusory. It's a shell game. It's mediated and engineered to produce a particular control. Design is everything.
