There’s a really nice series of posts from Liz Gannes on social networking and privacy from South by Southwest, which echo my thoughts from a week or so back.

- danah boyd talks about the [negative effects of some sites shifting approach to security](http://gigaom.com/2010/03/13/sxsw-boyd-calls-out-google-and-facebook-for-abusing-users-privacy/) - Google invites her to [come and talk to them](http://gigaom.com/2010/03/14/google-accepts-buzz-criticism-invites-boyd-to-speak-on-privacy/) in response - There could be some [standards-based technical solutions to the privacy problem](http://gigaom.com/2010/03/13/sxsw-is-privacy-on-the-social-web-a-technical-problem/) - And [Clay Shirky](http://shirky.com/ "Clay Shirky") talks about [the benefits of sharing information](http://gigaom.com/2010/03/14/sxsw-shirkys-new-opportunities-in-public-sharing/). (lots for journalists to think about in there)
