Abstract: 
Privacy is often used as an abstract concept, and negotiating what information to disclose to whom, where, at what times, and in what situations is a challenging one. In this paper we apply a previously proposed framework from Palen and Dourish for understanding and discussing privacy to a setting of sharing and acting on information about physical accessibility. We do this by describing existing practice for sharing of such information among wheelchair users, and compare that with new practices emerging from the use of ICT, the mobile, collaborative route planning concept OurWay. Through highlighting these changes, we discuss concrete privacy issues, and hope to provide a contribution to users, designers and analysts for creating and using mobile, networked technologies for accessible navigation of urban and built environments.
