This week is choose Privacy Week! http://www.privacyrevolution.org/

The website is very nice with word searches, a video and lots of resources!

Related, the Vancouver Sun on Saturday had two articles on Facebook:

Facebook, privacy advocates square off over what’s public and what’s protected

and

“Facebook spreads its influence”

Both discussing in great detail faceboook and recent changes to privacy settings and a bit of a look forward to the future of the web. I would recommend reading both.

Until next time LTAIGers!
