[email protected]: Henry Porter – Information overload

Earlier this week, Nick Clegg announced the membership of the Lib Dems’ new Commission on Privacy, “which will examine the use, abuse and retention of private data, and propose new safeguards to protect the rights of individuals.” Its membership comprises:

* David Heath MP (Chair) – Liberal Democrat Shadow Leader of the House
* Simon Davies – Privacy International; Fellow at LSE
* Shami Chakrabarti – Director of Liberty
* Baroness Sue Miller – Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Spokesperson in the House of Lords
* Henry Porter – Journalist on The Observer
* Prof. Ross Anderson – Professor of Security Engineering, University of Cambridge
* Richard Rampton QC – Barrister at law, specialising in libel
* Richard Allan – Former MP; Head of Government Affairs, Cisco Systems

Henry Porter has today blogged about his involvement, noting, “We will be working to suggest extra safeguards the government can introduce to protect the rights of individuals, and hope to produce a report in the spring.”

He concludes by asking:

The state now demands more information from people than at any time in history – what aspects of the government’s use, abuse or retention of private data worry you most?

Why not pop over to Henry’s blog, and join the debate?
