    Uniform rules on data protection are not just a pipe-dream of privacy professionals. They are also more than an artificial model of legal practitioners, and more than an ideal that drives politicians who engage in discussions about a right to forget or a fundamental right to privacy.

    The world's wealth, as measured by GDP, has been steadily growing for the last 100 years or so. But today there is more and more evidence of crisis in our world, in all areas: finance, environment, society. The causes are related to the lack of sustainability of our current model for growth and development. Simply put, the natural resources of this planet (Fig. 1) cannot sustain a population of 7+...

    When people design products and services, they often do so to help realize specific values. Design is a value-driven activity, although the values often remain implicit and unarticulated.

Similar statistics are also r... View full abstract»
