Notes from the Electronic Cottage 04/06/06

Part of our ongoing series on privacy in the digital age. This edition deals
with privacy in the commercial world – from companies amassing huge
databases about customers to those same companies losing control of that
data and what it means to you as a consumer and a citizen (the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security, after all, buys information about citizens
from commercial providers that it is not allowed by law to collect itself).
