I am interested to see that this message came
via "conferencealerts" rather than from the New School
itself.  Kind of like the "old days" when we would buy
mailing lists to advertise a conference to a select
set of audiences.

Conference Announcement

Privacy Conference
5 to 7 October 2000, New York, New York, USA

The distinction between what is public and what is private
is becoming more and more blurred with the increasing
intrusiveness of the media and advances in electronic
technology.  While this distinction is always the outcome
of continuous cultural negotiation, it continues to be
critical, for where nothing is private, democracy becomes
impossible.  How much of what is currently considered
private are we willing to make public in the name of
openness and convenience?  This conference will look
backward at the historical foundations of privacy and
forward to what the future may have in store.  Full-time
students with valid ID admitted free; all others $125 for
the full three days.
