Not quite sure if this is "good" or "less than good" DOPA has passed the house and social networking and sites with online personal info are about
to become verboten-land for some users... I'll throw it against the wall and see what sticks here. From a Tom's Hardware article:
"five point criteria.
(1) if is offered by a commercial entity; (2) if permits registered users to create an on-line profile that includes detailed personal information;
(3) if permits registered users to create an on-line journal and share such a journal with other users; (4) if it elicits highly-personalized
information from users; and (5) if enables communication among users"
This might be ever-so-icky as the FCC will apparently be responsible for maintaining the DB of sites that fit the bill. Link:
This throws a pretty wide net with holes-a-plenty... perhaps not. I wonder if the ATS site suite will pass muster.
Mods: Please shuffle this where it needs to be if I picked the incorrect forum,
PS. US-CERT released a tech alert about Mozilla products yesterday... patch time.
