Below are the slides for the presentation I gave at the W3C Workshop for Advanced Web APIs. See my other blog post for more information about the workshop and the paper.
Firefox 4 beta and geolocation
Had a brief look to see if anything had changed re: geolocation in Firefox in its first beta release of 4.0. Seems they have started to integrate an indicator into the address bar.
The indicator still does not show up when geolocation is active, but it’s a start and it’s good to see that they are working to fix that.
Privacy of Geolocation Implementations
Here is my position paper, “Privacy of Geolocation Implementations” (PDF ~500K), that I prepared for the W3C Workshop on Privacy for Advanced Web APIs.
UPDATE: the presentation slides are now available.
It’s a little bit drafty, so any feedback or comments welcomed. I will republish as a HTML file soon.
Investigating privacy in depth has been one of the most interesting things I’ve done in a long time… though it has left me a little bit creeped out. Hopefully I’ll get around to writing a bit more about what I read, what I’ve learned, and what practical changes I’ve made.
