A Watchdog With Some Bite Privacy from Companies9/26/2000; 9:16:19 AM 'Based at the University of Denver, the Privacy Foundation joins a dozen or so other watchdogs – including the Electronic Privacy Information Center, the Center for Democracy and Technology and the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse – guarding consumer privacy. But as an independent foundation, it should have more clout than industry groups such as TRUSTe and the Network Advertising Initiative, which police their own members. Barton's foundation has one other distinction: Concentrating on technology rather than on public policy, it will sharpen the debate between companies that gather private information and the groups that monitor them.'Let's hope it works as well as they hope.Also don't miss the "Defenders of Data" table at the end.
