danah has articulated something enormously important:

 "Privacy is an experience that people have, not a state of data."

This has strong implications for the ways we design technologies for
privacy. If privacy is a user experience issue, then the process for
design should be organized accordingly and cannot be accomplished without
the involvement of actual participants in the community who will use that
technology. If privacy is a data issue, then a completely different set of
heuristics apply.

thank you, danah!
