Irony Alert

The person appointed to the Homeland Security department to ensure that new
security regulations don't intrude too much on our personal privacy is...

the former privacy officer for DoubleClick!!!!!

You may recall that DoubleClick is the company that violated its own published
privacy policy by keeping personal data on anyone unfortunate enough to click
on one of their ads.

Doesn't bode well for Liberty, to say the least. >:-(

Doesn't surprise me. There's an article in SF Weekly (April 16th-22) about Adrian Lamo, the so called "homeless hacker". It's very interesting and made me think about how bg wants to "acquire" human resources that have proven effective in challenging and or defeating bg itself. Does this make sense? yours cordially and in Liberty, Raphael
