The reactions of the scientific community to the increase of daily technology; in particular; can be synthesized in two approaches. On one side the spread of mobile and controlling technology encourages critics to foresee an Orwellian context; on the other side the availability of such information and the development of scientific tools for processing complex dataset offer an incredible opportunity to scientist and social analysts.
So to what extent are we witnessing the case for extensive and realistic social experiments? The paper investigates the role played by rules of the scientific community and institutional norms in assuring the privacy of individuals while testing in vivo the impact of pervasive technologies.
