Article on Privacy in NY Times

There’s a very interesting article about digital/internet privacy issues in today’s New York Times which discusses many concerns we raised in class over the past couple of weeks.

I want to especially draw your attention to the end of the article: apparently several government agencies are considering policies that will mimic the “do not call” list (which allows people to remove their phone numbers from telemarketers’ lists) for online activities, similar to Marcelo’s suggestion in a blog post a couple of weeks ago.
