Safe Privacy Policy

As a member of Digital Identity Management Meetup group I have been asked to create a simple , easy to read and understandable privacy policy for consumer related websites. Why another privacy policy ? , as most of us don't realize our information about us is shared or sold to different other companies. When you signup for a service do you read the privacy policy or if you read do you understand. As part of this research I did go through Privacy Alliance 's resource center, this site provides useful guidelines to create a privacy policy.

Web Spam

If you manage your blog in MoveableType or using wordpress blog software you must have seen Web Spam,some call it form spam and trackback spam as spammers submit automated comment postings and trackback to your blog. Two ways to fight spam are using comment moderation. Akismet from Wordpress team is a collaborative effort to make comment and trackback spam a non-issue. I'm going to try akisment for my wordpress Blog and at work with Moveabletype.Stay tuned I will report the pros and cons of using Akismet.

fight for web 2.0

Tom Raftery a well know blogger,podcaster and organizer of Web 2.0 conference had issues with CMP Media/O Reilly. The question is who owns Web 2.0, in my opinion it belongs to the company who trademarked it. I completey agree with Tim , if you read his post carefully you will understand CMP/O Reilly doesn't own web 2.0 term, but the only condition you can't name a conference or a event as Web 2.0.

Just to be clear, neither CMP or O'Reilly is claiming the right to all use of the term Web 2.0, as some of the posters assert. We just want to keep other conference companies from putting on events that trade on the name and concept that we created. And don't tell me it's not possible to have a Web 2.0-related conference without using Web 2.0 in the name! Microsoft's Mix 06, Google's Zeitgeist, the Ajax Experience -- these are all web 2.0-related conferences that don't use the name.
