Abstract : The dominant concern for privacy in the 1970s was directed to recordkeeping systems, ones that maintain information about people for the purpose of making decisions or judgments about them, or for conducting a business transaction with them. An important new dimension of privacy will emerge in the 1980s as computer technology is used for systems that provide new services which happen to involve personal information other than directly in a recordkeeping sense. This leads to a discussion of privacy and electronic mail or electronic message systems.
