"Notes from the Electronic Cottage"

Welcome to listeners to today's segment of Jim Campbell's "Notes from the Electronic Cottage" on community radio WERU-FM in Blue Hill and Bangor, Maine. It's archived online and worth a listen. (And it put me back in touch with a long-lost relative who now lives near Blue Hill, heard the broadcast, and recognized my name!)

If you are looking for background, most of the details in the broadcast are taken from my article on What's in a Passenger Name Record (PNR)? and discussed further in this interview on NPR in 2003. If you need more nightmare scenarios, read this . For what the government is doing with this data about your travels, read this and this and the additional articles from me and from the Identity Project linked from the sidebar .

If, after learning about this, you want to see want to see what's in your own travel records, see the instructions and forms in my article on How to request your travel records .
