    The difference between secrecy and privacy as security concepts.

    SteveTX stated in another thread the difference between privacy and anonymity - as I recall. I'll have to look that up to refresh my memory unless someone can reply to cover that aspect - and we can all bask in the glow of privacy, anonymity and secrecy, eh?

    Thanks very much for those links. I hadn't seen what Kerr's been up to recently. Orin Kerr's theory of equilibrium adjustment is on par with his "technology neutrality" theory, below. Both are an effort to reassure jurists that the disastrous, untenable body of Fourth Amendment law they created has not been penned in vain, and they can just transfer the whole mess wholesale to internet technology, which he will happily oversimplify for them, in order to retrofit his analysis.
