So, whatcha readin? The
John Ashcroft Alberto Gonzales
Michael Mukasey Book Club wants to discuss your latest reads. Amazon
thinks it's none of their business. So does your librarian
. While it may seem that your reading list is safe, fact is you're actually just one National Security Letter or subpoena away from full disclosure. Want to change that? One step in the right direction would be to contact your Senator about getting S.2088
out of Committee and on to the floor. Oh, and tell them to vote for it. And then to override the veto.

Does Amazon deserve my statistics?
I knew this
was coming but I was hoping that it would all turn out for the better and Amazon would come to their senses. So the question is, are Wish Lists
worth my data? Will ownership of my spending habits, phone number, address, credit card, browsing habits, and email address become the new price for using the Internet as a consumer?

makes any information you give them a saleable asset. I could have sworn that I saw a link to Amazon's new policy here on MeFi, but now I can't find it. Anyway, when I saw the link my first question was how the old and new policies differed. Then a friend pointed me at this CNNfn article. Whaddy think? Gives me the creeps...
