The privacy discussion is heating up

Internet privacy issues are getting more and more attention.  Frankly, I think we’re getting past the point where the only big risk is loss of liberty. More and more, the risk of an excessive backlash is upon us as well. (In the medical area, I’d say it’s already more than a risk — it’s a life-wrecking reality. But now the problem is poised to become wider-spread.)

    We need those electronic/online records. Badly. And we need more sharing of them, not less.

    So we need a much more sophisticated legal framework for privacy than is now available.
