Data protection/privacy bloggers

For those interested in data protection/privacy, there are a few blogs that are worth following:

PIPEDA Blog - Written by a Canadian Lawyer, this contains information related to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (aka PIPEDA) and other Canadian and international laws.
Privacy Podcast - By Aaron Titus, with a US bias on keeping identity secure.
Marketing by Permission - By Tim Trent with a UK focus on data protection developments
SpyBlog - Need no further explanation.

Let me know if there are any new blogs that have a data protection/privacy focus.

Sensitive data

I have been doing a lot of writing lately, hence the lack of any blog posts recently. Anyway, the latest article that I recently wrote is on sensitive data which examines the current data protection framework and in particular, the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and its categorisation of sensitive data under Art. 8 as applied to the internet. The article can be found here. Any views on this subject are welcome.
