Mobile computing and open government are bringing more people into government than ever before.

There are three interesting models of privacy that are embodied by Superheroes: Authenticated Identity (Tony Stark/Iron Man); Persistent Pseudonymity (Peter Parker/Spiderman and Clark Kent/Superman) and Anonymity (Bruce Wayne/Batman). I'll illustrate how each of these are already being used in civic apps and talk about what individuals should expect, government managers should require, and app developers should encode in terms of privacy and power from new citizen engagement tools.
