A couple of discussions on location privacy and the iPhone

So my recent posts analyzing the iPhone location data log have gained a lot of traffic and attention over the past few days, from places including the Toronto Star, the Wall Street Journal, TUAW, PC World, MacDailyNews, Apfeltalk (German), Cisco, Pete Warden at O'Reilly, Business Insider, and more.

This led to me being invited to participate in a discussion on the Brian Lehrer Show yesterday on radio WNYC, the NPR affiliate in New York, together with Jennifer Valentino-Devries of the Wall Street Journal. We had a good sensible discussion, in contrast with a lot of the hysterical reporting that has been going on.

Today I will be taking part in a longer discussion on the KQED Forum discussion show in San Francisco. Also participating will be Congresswoman Jackie Speier, Jim Dempsey from the Center for Technology and Democracy, and Kara Swisher of All Things Digital. This will be at 10am mountain time, there should be a recording here sometime after that.
