Data Protection Day

Did you know that today is Data Protection Day, an initiative of the Council of Europe? If BBC News is your only source of information, probably not. I have not been able to find any mention, whereas it is reported by several foreign media.

If the BBC could pull themselves away from kissing the arse of a certain crap-food producer ('Everything I needed to know I learned in McDonald's', BBC News, Monday, 28 January 2008), perhaps they could spare a brief moment for something some of us feel is important.

If they even know what privacy means that is. Anyone who dares so much as sneeze could find their name and photograph published on the BBC News site the following day, with a chemical analysis of their snot.
