Weekend update: Other things found this week:
Still following the public records search companies and wondering what's going to happen there. Some discussion on the Electronic Privacy Information Center site, which also breaks down the privacy news by company: here's Choicepoint news; and on the Public Domain Progress blog. Also see When your identity is their commodity in the Washington Post. Then, of course, there's 'Patriot Act-Diebold-Choicepoint', from Daily Kos.
