The Government Wants To Protect Your Online Privacy. Sort Of.

It would be easier for me to be more enthusiastic about this....

"The Obama administration is rolling out new policies to safeguard internet privacy, reports the Wall Street Journal. The new internet privacy strategy will be outlined in a report by the Commerce Department to be released in the next few weeks. The White House has set up a task force headed by Cameron Kerry (brother to Sen. John Kerry) to implement the strategy."

...if the administration wasn't also pursuing plans to ensure that communications providers build in back doors to let the government snoop on your web traffic. I guess, though, I'd rather not have to choose from an array of Big Brothers.
