FYI I have put a video of a panel discussion from the recent Computers,
Privacy & Data Protection Conference on the wiki. It clarifies the current
EP amendments to the new Regulation covering pseudonymous (de-identified)
data, consent and Do Not Track.

Here is a link to the wiki:

http://www.w3.org/wiki/Privacy/De-identification#Government_reports

It might be a good idea to link to the wiki from our group home page, so it
would be easier to find.

Cheers

Mike

As suggested on the call last week (ACTION-347), I've set up a wiki page we
can use to collect and annotate resources regarding de-identification:

	http://www.w3.org/wiki/Privacy/De-identification

Anyone with a W3C account can edit this wiki page. (I've put it within the
Privacy Interest Group wiki space rather than creating a separate one;
de-identification resources are likely to be of use beyond just this WG.)

I've collected the links Peter shared and a couple of academic papers,
clearly just a starting point. Add others!
