The online news and opinion source Future Brief (to whom I contribute articles), is an initiative of the firm New Global. To gain an understanding of how Americans view privacy and safety in light of new technologies, Future Brief commissioned Zogby International, an opinion research firm, to conduct a standardized poll on these two questions:
What effect do you feel that emerging technologies are having upon personal privacy?
What effect do you feel that emerging technologies are having upon your personal safety/security?
You can see the results here.
Other questions, submitted by Future Brief readers, also have been asked. Those results will be posted in the weeks ahead.
