Show Notes

This week on Privacy Please, we talk about Tetsuya Inoue, manager of Asahi Ryokan Hotel, who introduced a unique strategy allowing guests a $1 stay in exchange for live-streaming their entire visit. Despite the project's conclusion, it gained popularity, highlighting the changing attitudes of younger generations towards privacy. The success also brings attention to the broader implications of sacrificing personal privacy for innovative business models, particularly as hidden cameras in holiday rentals become more prevalent. This case prompts a critical discussion on data privacy in an era where technology increasingly infiltrates daily life.
