Digital privacy behind virtual walls
June 4th, 2007

Ubiquitous computing was the only subject discussed at the 5th International Conference on Pervasive Computing held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on May 13-16, 2007. As reports the National Post, ‘in the future, everything will be a computer.’ As ultra small computers can now embedded in virtually everything, pervasive computing applications will have a double impact on our lives. On one side, they’ll be friendly, because almost ‘invisible.’ On the other hand, they’ll reduce our personal privacy. While the article mentioned above describes a whole range of pervasive applications, this post just looks at one which can gives us back some privacy: virtual walls.
