I have said this before and I will say it again. The President understands tech very well, and he is on our side.

"The Obama administration is calling for stronger privacy protections for consumers as mobile gadgets, Internet services and other tools are able to do a better job of tracking what you do and where you go.

Administration officials outlined a proposed "Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights" on Thursday and urged technology companies, consumer groups and others to jointly craft new protections. Such guidelines would initially be voluntary for companies, but those that agree to abide by them could be subject to sanctions for any violations.

"As the Internet evolves, consumer trust is essential for the continued growth of the digital economy," President Barack Obama said in a statement. "That's why an online privacy Bill of Rights is so important. For businesses to succeed online, consumers must feel secure." "

We need to let our voices be heard on this new Consumer Privacy Legislation.

No.

The Federal government has no place in regulating our computer hardware. Consumers already have unlimited rights in choosing what information they put on the web. There is nothing the government can do to enhance that; it can only limit it through this proposed legislation.

This will enable the executive branch to exercise influence and have control over companies that take on this legislation. They will be able to indirectly pick and choose the innovators that succeed in the tech industry.

It's a dangerous trail to go on. Give them a little and eventually they will consume the whole thing.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

My understanding is that its voluntary and that as a first step, the "do not track" option is being respected when users select it.

How does this indicate "understanding of tech"?

I mean it in a broad perspective.

This President believes in technology, free speech, and the two correlating with each other in an anonymous fashion.
