While I've found Nissenbaum's work useful and interesting, I've always been bothered by the lack of politics in her arguments... This review of a recent book she co-authored cuts deep, to question her approach by taking the role of the state seriously:

@ashwin excited to read this review. I've been enjoying Obfuscation.


@ben I've only read Privacy in Context, but I'd be curious to know what you think of Obfuscation in light of this review. And now I feel obliged to read Obfuscation myself!

@ashwin it's short and a quick read—half case study, half underpinning. I haven't looked at it in about 6 months, so after a quick reread I'll share my thoughts :)
