Well, here is the abstract.
This qualitative study examines privacy practices and
concerns among contributors to open collaboration projects.
We collected interview data from people who use the
anonymity network Tor who also contribute to online
projects and from Wikipedia editors who are concerned
about their privacy to better understand how privacy
concerns impact participation in open collaboration
projects. We found that risks perceived by contributors to
open collaboration projects include threats of surveillance,
violence, harassment, opportunity loss, reputation loss, and
fear for loved ones. We explain participants’ operational
and technical strategies for mitigating these risks and how
these strategies affect their contributions. Finally, we
discuss chilling effects associated with privacy loss, the
need for open collaboration projects to go beyond attracting
and educating participants to consider their privacy, and
some of the social and technical approaches that could be
explored to mitigate risk at a project or community level.
