New Thinking

When I read blog entries such as this one at ZDNet, I get both amused and frustrated at the lack of critical thinking that drives opinion on these and other important issues. You'd think it's an either/or proposition, and that the only available options outside of inaction are both evil and unacceptable. Yet, while hand-wringing goes on over current practice and worst option alternatives, no one's talking about other available approaches to the vexing challenge of maintaining watch lists without violating privacy.

IBM's Jeff Jonas figured the solution out a while ago and writes about it often in his blog (which is worth reading for a host of reasons). This entry is worth reading for a safe, innovative take on the issue of managing watch lists effectively, and without the troublesome privacy issues that most folks are worried about.
