Been There, Done That

I’m usually quicker on the uptake on issues like this, but I’ve been very busy with other aspects of my business that I’ve neglected my blogging. So, for those of you still paying attention…

A couple weeks ago, Computerworld ran an article entitled Are Privacy Notices Worthless?

Hmmm. Where have I read that before? Oh, yeah… back in August when I wrote Has Notice Failed? (registration required) for the 1to1: Privacy newsletter. Sure, Computerworld may have a bigger readership, but the fact that my Kilroy was there to greet Jay Cline and his readers when they arrived nearly six months later makes me feel better about the whole thing (and just a touch superior).

I guess you could say I’m the Macomber Bombay of the privacy world. Aren’t familiar with Macomber Bombay? Good luck with a Google search, since the ancient archives of MAD Magazine don’t seem to have made it online yet, but Bombay was the fictional, unknown photographer for Life who was waiting at the summit of Mt. Everest to get the photo of Edmund Hillary’s historic ascent, among other first human achievements chronicled on film.

To be clear, I’m not busting on Cline. The piece he wrote for Computerworld was excellent. I’m just contorting my humble frame to pat myself on the back. I should be careful lest I strain a muscle. After all, pride cometh before a fall.

I'd be remiss if I didn't include a link to Jay's web site, Minnesota Privacy Consultants:
