Graham Spanier to Host TV Show Discussing Online Privacy

Tune in to WPSU-TV, WPSU-FM, or the Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN), at 8 p.m. tonight for the next installment of Graham Spanier’s “To the Best of My Knowledge”, a live call-in program that highlights a variety of topics relevant to the members of the Penn State and State College communities.

Graham Spanier is the featured host this week, and will discuss online privacy with Heng Xu, an assistant professor of information sciences and technology at Penn State, and Josh Blackman, a teaching fellow from the Dickinson School of Law. In an age where anyone has the ability to completely expose every aspect of their daily lives through Twitter, Facebook, and countless other social networking sites, the topic of online privacy is applicable to anyone who has been caught up by the new media wave.

Heng Xu will offer her expert opinion on the topic through her research on information privacy, security management, human-computer interaction, and technology innovation. At Penn State, she teaches courses related to the topics of security and risk analysis, integration of privacy and security, and the ways people cultivate information.

Josh Blackman can offer insight on the legal side of things as he is a published scholar in the area of privacy law, constitutional law, property law, national security law, and civil rights law.

Viewers interested in participating in the discussion can contact the show live by calling 800-543-8242 or emailing [email protected]

I'm quite odd, a little creepy, and pretty awkward, but we'd probably get along.

In real life I'm a THON 2011 Supply Logistics Captain, a Homecoming 2010 Public Relations Captain, a member of Zeta Tau Alpha, a dancer in ETCH Dance Co. and I tweet a lot.

“If you’ve ever seen the movie You’ve Got Mail, you’ll understand me when I say I have the “Kathleen Kelly Syndrome.” I often have trouble saying exactly what I mean. Instead, I find it easier to outsource by using quotes or songs to convey my message. That’s why you’ll find a few of my favorites scattered throughout this post: my senior column.”
