This is not a recent article, but it is about our own Professor Menczer. The first coverage occurred this time last year:
BLOOMINGTON (AP) — An Indiana University researcher is defending efforts to use smartphone technology to study sexual behaviors around the globe after university attorneys pulled the plug on the project amid privacy concerns.
Filippo Menczer, a professor of informatics and computer science, said the app developed for the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction was approved by a review board and vetted by technology and security advisers before it was launched in mid-August.
“The fact that it has been pulled should not be interpreted to mean that there was anything wrong with it,” he said.
An updated app was released in May 2013:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — With privacy concerns addressed, Indiana University has re-released the free Kinsey Reporter app, a global mobile survey platform for collecting and reporting anonymous data about sexual and other intimate behaviors.
