> Carnegie Mellon University - Laboratory for International Data Privacy.

The overall mission of the Laboratory for International Data Privacy (also known as the "Data Privacy Lab") at Carnegie Mellon University is to provide intellectual leadership to society in shaping the evolving relationship between technology and the legal right to or public expectation of privacy in the collection and sharing of data.

The Data Privacy Lab is an interdisciplinary research group dedicated to exploring, assessing and creating technology that provides scientific assurrances of anonymity in data. Existing within the School of Computer Science, the Data Privacy Lab enjoys a unique vantage point for: (1) examining diverse data privacy problems (from financial, economic, criminal, medical and genetic information, to name a few); and, (2) posing solutions that help shape tomorrow's technology as well as today's policies. The Data Privacy Lab seeks balanced, integrated solutions that weave technology and policy together.

"A Simple Tool for Better eGovernment

"Dave Fletcher reports that Ferret, a publication of the Utah State Library, is now available as a weblog. Ferret publishes links and editorial about web sites that may be of interest to Utah State agencies. They're too modest. These web sites are probably of interest to anyone with an interest in government. Two things of note:

  1. As Dave points out, now that its a blog, it will probably be more current.
  2. More importantly, now that its a blog, there's an RSS feed. (check on the right hand column for the link)." [Windley's Enterprise Computing Weblog]

I keep telling folks that one of the best reasons to use blogging software is that you automatically get an RSS feed (well, you need a little extra help if you're using Blogger, but it can still be done). This simple fact can not be over-emphasized because most of us don't have the slightest clue how to generate our own RSS.
