- Handout: Chapter on Travel Privacy from "Privacy and Human Rights" (EPIC and Privacy International, 2004), principally authored by Edward Hasbrouck with important contributions by Marcia Hofmann and others
- Notes: Travel ID and the Travel Panopticon
Great research - I share your concerns about privacy but perhaps not with the same vigor. You know, regardless of how CAPPSII/Secure Flight play out, it's still going to be a no win for the TSA. Personally, I like the idea of an opt-in system for trusted traveler. My Sabre colleagues and I think the concept is highly leveragable (that a word?) and we intend to see if we can get buy in. I enjoy your blog.
I am fully optimized with your well organized contribution in travel world. I wish to receive regular update of your work.
Wishing you a good health and sucess in all your ongoing work assignments.
This blog was mentioned in a thread on Fark.com about some kind of proposal initiated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to deny people either entry or exit of America.
Have you heard anything about that proposal? Any bill number or legislation anywhere by anyone? Thomas.loc.gov, for example? I'd really like some concrete proof of this happening before I strip and clean my guns.
