Now Live: Privacy Maven

On behalf of Gary Price and Daniel Ayala, we are very pleased to announce the launch of Privacy Maven, now live and operational today.

Privacy Maven is a curated reading list of current and (we hope) interesting articles, journals and scholarly pieces that communicate the current state and challenges related to privacy, related compliance, digital ethics, and information security. We also keep an eye on the ever-evolving relationship between consumers and businesses. 

In addition to being a reading list, we will also add commentary to the pieces we find especially exciting and long-form analysis and insight into the state of privacy, technology, information and security at the point where they all intersect. 

Privacy Maven is free and is available via multiple mediums, including via your favourite RSS feed reader (e.g. Feedbin, NewsWrangler, Feedly, Reeder) :
