Paranoia Strikes Deep 2
(December 01, 2005) Frequent correspondent Karen Mattonen, reminded us of a Wired article from a couple of years ago. The article cites Pam Dixon, one of our industry's primary watchdogs on the privacy issue. At that time, Dixon had just published a report about privacy and the employment market. Over the years, Pam's sensitivity (or over sensitivity as some would have it) to privacy issues led her to found the World Privacy Forum which appears to focus more on health care than job hunting.
