I am participating in a preparatory talk of the Quintessenz organization in their meeting room, which is part of the Electric Avenue nicely located at Quartier 21 of the Museumsquartier in Vienna. Around twenty people are sticking their heads together discussing action to be taken in order to get the next round of Big Brother Awards Austria up and running.
The awards are given to companies, organizations or individual who have “threatened personal privacy” in one respect or another. The Big Brother Awards have been pioneered by Privacy International in Britain and the Austrian group introduced the concept in the german-speaking world. Germany and Switzerland followed up soon.
