On June 21, 2010, The Office of the Privacy Commissioner hosted its third Consumer Privacy Consultation event of the year. Located in Calgary, this consultation event focused primarily on the privacy implications of cloud computing. Featuring a wide variety of industry experts and engaging panelists, the event was highly successful.
One of the factors contributing to the success of the event was the extraordinary online engagement of citizens both at the event and elsewhere. Using Twitter, interested participants could ask questions, share knowledge and engage with the experts. Hundreds of messages were exchanged over Twitter throughout the day, resulting in a fascinating back-channel to supplement the live interactions taking place at the consultation event itself.
