03/13/01 RMIUG Meeting
- "Privacy on the Net - Who's watching (out
The Tuesday, March 13th, 2001 meeting of
the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group
(RMIUG) will be a panel discussion called
"Privacy on the Net - Who's watching (out
for) you?" Please join us for what promises
to be a fascinating discussion on the timely
and important issue of online privacy.
Andy Cervantes (firstname.lastname@example.org),
Chief Operating Officer at the Denver-based
Privacy Foundation will be our first speaker.
Information is presented to us as a commodity
in many forms: newspapers, stock tips and
sitcoms. Now, the eyes are turning back
towards us. Andy will discuss why privacy
is no longer just the domain of movie stars
and politicians, but is actually a right
and resource that belongs to all of us.
Jeff Finkelstein (email@example.com),
Director of Product Strategy at Persona,
Inc., will examine emerging privacy issues
facing consumers, businesses and government.
Jeff's talk will survey a number of current
privacy issues including Workplace Surveillance,
Wireless Privacy, European Union Safe Harbor
laws, Health Care & Medical Records privacy,
and online profiling.
As always, plenty of time will be allocated
for interactive Q&A, so bring lots of questions
and be ready for an interesting evening
of interactive discussion.

Park in the NCAR lot, go in the main door,
and ask the guard to point you to meeting,
which is held in the main auditorium, right
off the lobby. The meeting is free and open
to the public, but we may pass the hat to
help defray expenses.
Our meeting location seats about 120 people.
That is usually enough room to accommodate
all attendees, but it's impossible for us
to predict how many people will show up
for any given meeting. Seating is always
on a first-come, first serve basis, and
in the event of more attendees than seats,
we won't be able to admit additional people
into the auditorium after all seats are
