...I'm just not sure that companies that regularly follow me as I move through cyberspace (stealthily, I might add) have enough credibility to be proposing these reforms. You might remember that many of them didn't reveal their techniques to "help" you find products you were interested in until consumers complained LOUDLY. That's when privacy policies were revised and expanded. Once again, it has to be the consumers (citizens) who continue to raise their voices about the government collecting information we consider private. Unfortunately, an privacy expert I interviewed years ago (before 9/11) was right: Once you step out of your door, you're in the public domain, so don't expect privacy. Apparently, he his insights just didn't go far enough.
