ject such as this-one that attempts a taxonomy of the sprawling and complex concept
of privacy-cannot be created by one individual alone. I owe an enormous debt of
gratitude to many people who provided helpful comments on the manuscript or parts
thereof at various stages in its development: Anita Allen, Howard Erichson, Jim Free-
man, Robert Gellman, Rachel Godsil, Stan Karas, Orin Kerr, Raymond Ku, Chip Lupu,
Jon Michaels, Larry Mitchell, Robert Post, Neil Richards, Michael Risinger, Peter Sand,
Heidi Schooner, Paul Schwartz, Lior Strahilevitz, Charles Sullivan, Michael Sullivan,
Peter Swire, Robert Tuttle, Sarah Waldeck, Richard Weisberg, and James Whitman.
Thanks to Michael Weisberg and Brian Leiter for directing me to useful resources on
systematics. I would also like to thank my research assistants, Poornima Ravishankar,
Jessica Kahn, and Tiffany Stedman for their excellent assistance. Additionally, I bene-
fited from helpful comments when I presented this paper at a workshop at Washington
University and at a conference sponsored by the International Association of Privacy
Professionals. The George Washington University School of Law scholarship fund pro-
vided generous support for this Article.
