California Democrat Jackie Speier has introduced a "Do Not Track"
bill in Congress. The intent is to stop companies from data-mining information about you. But will it also stop Uncle
from warrant-free snooping...?
Also, Firefox 4
-- now in Beta -- has a "Do Not Track" feature. I tried an earlier version of 4 and found it full of annoyances, as is common with Betas. But this is a step in the right direction.
