A location metasystem can support interoperation between location services, protect users' privacy and handle issues of granularity. The simple OAuth protocol may be a good model for working towards a location metasystem.
One critique of Privacy-by-Design has focused on its lack of concrete guidance for implementation. We have proposed privacy design patterns (drawing from architectural design patterns and object-oriented programming design patterns) as documentation that can be more directly applicable and have established a site to coordinate collaborative development of(More)
