Information Commissioner's website

The UK Information Commissioner's website has recently been revamped. There is information about dealing with nuisance calls and spam and environmental information. What is unclear is why put emphasis on environmental information? Anyway, the website also contains details about the upcoming Data Protection Commissioners' conference, which will be held on 2-3rd November 2006 and there will be an open session on the theme "a surveillance society." Finally, on the topic of surveillance, the European Commission has issued a consultation paper (pdf) on the use of surveillance technology in civil society.
