FullSizeRenderThank you, New York Law School faculty, for honoring me with the Otto L. Walter Distinguished Writing Award for my article, Privacy As Trust: Sharing Personal Information in a Networked World. This was indeed a great honor, especially because there were many other amazing pieces submitted for consideration. Published in the University of Miami Law Review, the article argues that information known to some others can still be protected as private if we start understanding privacy not as a shield against others, but as protecting the very relationships of trust that inspire sharing in the first place. This article formed the theoretical center of my doctoral dissertation and is the basis for my forthcoming book, Privacy As Trust: Information Privacy for an Information Age, to be published by Cambridge University Press.
