Emotional training has changed over time. A part of the men of my generation were taught to contain their emotions. Men don’t cry. Publicly expressing certain emotions can be considered rude (or, worse, a weakness). Privacy (i.e. solitude) is the only space suitable for male emotions. The intimacy understood as a personal space that is never shared. Privacy is a right and, above all, a way of working. There are some things can only be the product of personal reflection, in the strictest privacy.
I know I simplify things. Maybe we should not talk about emotions and intimacy. Maybe we should talk about "privacy". But now there are a couple of phenomena related to digitizations that, at the very least, are at on the verge of privacy: the collective intelligence and transparency.
Collective intelligence challenges the individual reflection as a basic tool for understanding. Adding up is so powerful! Adding up from different perspectives gives unprecedented solutions to complex problems. But I will focus on transparency.
