Facebook, the STASI, KitKats, the NSA and a digital caste system: defining the privacy problem
I don’t see any evidence thus far the the great and the good have any clue that this is what they need to be thinking about. If there is any clue as to the direction of travel it is that the focus needs to be on the algorithms, not the data they feed on.

We live in a world of a rising tide of data, and trying to control the tides is a futile exercise, as Canute the Great demonstrated in the 11th century. The only difference between then and now is that Canute understood this, and his exercise in placing his seat by the ocean was designed to demostrate the limits of kingly power. The GDPR is currently dragging its regulatory throne to the waters edge anticipating an entirely different outcome.

Network governance - Wikipedia
Network governance is "interfirm coordination that is characterized by organic or informal social system, in contrast to bureaucratic structures within firms and formal contractual relationships between them.[1] The concepts of privatization, public private partnership, and contracting are defined in this context." Network governance constitutes a "distinct form of coordinating economic activity" (Powell, 1990:301) which contrasts and competes with markets and hierarchies.[2]

Establishing Distributed Governance... (PDF Download Available)
The emergence of blockchain 2.0 technology enables novel agile business networking collaborations for decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO). Smart contracts are enactable by service-oriented cloud computing and blockchain technology for governing DAOs that engage in business collaborations. The distributed governance infrastructure (DGI) for such governance involves an ecosystem of agents, policies, services, and so on. To the best of our knowledge, a formal investigation of the lifecycle for establishing such a DGI has not been explored so far. This paper fills the gap by establishing a formalized DGI intended for the enactment of smart contracts for electronic communities of DAOs. The evaluation of the DGI-lifecycle is performed by means of model checking and discussing what pre-existing systems and also by means of discussing what pre-existing solutions exist for an application-system implementation.

Distributed Governance | William & Mary Law Review
Distributed ledger technology disrupts traditional business organizations by introducing new business entities without the directors and officers of traditional corporate entities. Although these emerging entities offer intriguing possibilities, distributed entities may suffer significant collective action problems and expose investors to catastrophic regulatory and governance risks. Our Article examines key considerations for stakeholders and argues that distributed entities must be carefully structured to function effectively.

         This Article breaks new ground by critically examining distributed entities. We argue that a distributed model is most appropriate when distributed ledger technology solves a unique corporate governance problem. We caution against ignoring the lessons painstakingly learned through past governance failures.

Four Verities of Government - Dan Geer
Testimony of Daniel E. Geer, Jr., Sc.D. to U. S. House of Representatives Committee on Science Subcommittee on Technology Washington, DC, 11 February 1997

"I am reminded of what I know as the four verities of government:

Most exciting ideas are not important,
Most important ideas are not exciting,
Not every problem has a good solution, and
Every solution has side effects."

Everything You Know About the Vulnerability Equities Process Is Wrong - Lawfare Aug 2016
Via Dan Geer, "Rubicon"

"The vulnerability equities process (VEP) is broken. While it is designed to ensure the satisfaction of many equities, in reality it satisfies none—or at least, none visible to those beyond the participants of the insular process. Instead of meaningfully shaping best outcomes, the VEP provides thin public relations cover when the US government is questioned on its strategy around vulnerabilities."

Why does the government need to know your gender?
Starting this week,[the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare] will begin sending out new cards to the 44 million Medicare recipients, none of which will include any mention of the recipients’ gender.
If all citizens are treated equally under the law anyway, then why does the government need to know that part of your life in the first place?

State vital records bureaus may have reason to record sex assigned at birth for public health statistics, but does that information need to be on the printed birth certificate? For documents like driver’s licenses or passports that already feature a photograph, does an M or F or X — pretty much the furthest thing from a unique identifier — really help identify individuals and prevent identity theft? It’s far from clear that the answer to any of these questions is yes.
[T]he transit system in Philadelphia dropped the gender markers on its passes in 2013.
[T]here remain significant obstacles to removing gender from other forms of ID. For driver’s licenses and state ID cards, the federal REAL ID Act allows states to decide how to list gender, but still requires it be listed in some way.

New federal legislation would be required to clear the way for states to take gender off these documents. International standards for passports also require that gender be listed, although the International Civil Aviation Organization has discussed changing this requirement in the future.

No federal law or international standard requires that U.S. birth certificates list gender, so states would be free to remove gender from the face of short-form birth certificates even while continuing to collect and confidentially maintain gender as part of their internal vital statistics records. Pennsylvania recently came close when it replaced the words “mother” and “father” with the word “parent” on new birth certificates.

Gender matters — but it’s a personal matter. It’s personal enough that we should want the government nowhere near it. The rationales for listing gender in any given context need to be examined closely, and gender should not be listed just because it has been in the past.
