Back at the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles in 2000, Democrats.com asked me (Joyce Schwarz blogging at www.hollywood2020.blogs.com) to help them organize and promote a HUSH IN about Internet and online privacy.
Why do I bring this up now? -- because 7 years later a DO NOT TRACK list is being discussed and advocated by some of the nation's top privacy activists. Showing the relevance of what Democrats.com did back then.
Here's a JPEG of that press release:
