How can we protect our privacy in this digital era? Because of the emerging of 'The internet of things' this question becomes more and more relevant to designers. Techlogy becomes part of our daily used products. Watches, clothing, cars, houses are becoming 'smart', all being connected to the 'cloud'. This book gives you guidance on how to design for privacy. This book is written to encourage designers to think about and to design for privacy issues. The techlogy behind the smart products and systems are so complex, that for the consumer it is difficult to understand what the consequences are for everyday life. Designers have to start thinking about transparency and accessibility in the design of privacy-sensitive products and services. This book offers the designer guidance, in the form of eight design principles, that help with designing products and services.
Tijmen holds an MA in both interactive media design from the HKU (graduating with an interactive urban screen) and new media theory from the University of Utrecht (graduating with distinction on a thesis that critically examined ubiquitous computing ideology).
