ITBusiness.ca mentiones your ATIP, and then quotes the government claiming that their chosen reviewers are sufficient.

You may want to get a letter to the editor in about that nonsense.

"Members of the IT security community, meanwhile, took umbrage when their efforts to get more details on the security behind the census were rebuffed. This included a group of University of Ottawa students who filed an Access to Information Request so they could audit the software documentation and the policy behind it."

I did it, I listened to your podcast ! Thanks for getting out there. It's good to see Comp. Sci. geeks getting out. Concerning describing Creative Commons as a "hippie community", I irk at that explanation, even though I'm a bit of a hippie myself. Are Creative Commons people communists too? Most of the world hates those two ideoligies, and it's important to make people aware that Creative Commons isn't anti-commercial or anti-capitalist, it's just a different model for artists to make money.

Dude, another great episode! Keep em coming. My favorite part was the title "mystical powers of santa claus". Who wouldn't want to check it out after hearing that?!?
