| Tom Griffin (London, OK): Welcome to the second edition of the Carnival on
| Modern Liberty, chronicling the online debate in the run up to the Convention
| on Modern Liberty at the end of the month.
| It's been a week that has highlighted the state's interest in diverse areas
| of our private lives, especially our online activities. There's good news for

| I'd like to urge you similarly to comment on Lord Carter’s *interim* report
| on Digital Britain: if it's “interim”, that suggests it will be iterated,
| drawing on feedback. But in contrast to the excellent Power of Information
| Taskforce site, there seems to be no easy way to offer paragraph by paragraph
| comments on Digital Britain. Instead, many people (like myself) have simply
| posted an overall view on the report.

,----[ Quote ]
| None of the data stored on identity cards in the European Union is encrypted,
| according to a study by the European Network and Information Security Agency.
