Excerpt from "Navigating Privacy and User Rights Issues in an 'I Agree' Era"

If there was some way to convey the terms and the privacy policies in ways that were much more easy to understand, and at least have people reflect on what they're agreeing to before they click "I agree,"

something like that is like building a critical digital literacy -- literacy around rights issues, not just literacy in terms of skills or how you use this technology.
