Summary of “‘Data is a fingerprint’: why you aren’t as anonymous as you think online”

In August 2016, the Australian government released an “Anonymised” data set comprising the medical billing records, including every prescription and surgery, of 2.9 million people.
“It’s convenient to pretend it’s hard to re-identify people, but it’s easy. The kinds of things we did are the kinds of things that any first year data science student could do,” said Vanessa Teague, one of the University of Melbourne researchers to reveal the flaws in the open health data.
“The point is that data that may look anonymous is not necessarily anonymous,” she said in testimony to a Department of Homeland Security privacy committee.
More recently, Yves-Alexandre de Montjoye, a computational privacy researcher, showed how the vast majority of the population can be identified from the behavioural patterns revealed by location data from mobile phones.
“Location data is a fingerprint. It’s a piece of information that’s likely to exist across a broad range of data sets and could potentially be used as a global identifier,” de Montjoye said.
Even if location data doesn’t reveal an individual’s identity, it can still put groups of people at risk, she explained.
Montjoye and others have shown time and time again that it’s simply not possible to anonymise unit record level data – data relating to individuals – no matter how stripped down that data is.
“There are firms that specialise in combining data about us from different sources to create virtual dossiers and applying data mining to influence us in various ways.”

Summary of “When a cold case is solved, why can’t internet sleuths move on?”

Without any leads or the resources to mount a full-on manhunt, the case of Lyle Stevik quickly went cold.
Nearly 20 years later, after a corner of the internet took the case upon itself, the identity of Lyle Stevik has become the center of a fractious debate over privacy, ethics, and Reddit true-crime sleuths.
So Lyle wound up on a long list of cold cases, unidentified bodies, John and Jane Does.
Many people who followed Lyle’s case connected with him on this level too.
“My heart just went out to Lyle because I felt I could identify with him. I could have gone the way he did,” a Reddit user named dlenn commented on one thread about the case being solved last month.
For many years, Lyle Stevik’s case was like many cold cases onto which true crime sleuths latch online.
In the wake of the official Lyle Stevik sub being closed, they’ve formed their own groups, dedicated to tracking down Lyle’s identity.
The Lyle Stevik case is, in many ways, a true-crime anomaly because it was actually solved.
