Access to Information

Both the topics I had planned for when I got home tonight were about information
  1. What I could and couldn't blog about my time at the moment
  2. the Open Rights Group's two year birthday
strangely a third added itself to the list. They are however all are intertwined.
The first is jury duty which is currently breading a post on the inefficiencies of government run organisations.
The second is about an organisation which is trying to bring digital rights and safeguards to the forefront of everyone's mind, especially the governments.
The last is of course the loss of the name, address, date of birth, National Insurance number and, where relevant, bank details of 25m people.
This government tells us we can trust it with all our medical records on a central database, the ID Card and electronic voting. Right now I wouldn't trust them to take a breath out after they have breathed in.
