   This is a updated Call for Discussion for the creation of a new newsgroup 
with the name:

    comp.society.privacy  

The original CFD went out several months ago.  Most of the comments were
favourable, the only disagreement was whether it should be named
comp.privacy or comp.society.privacy.  Because of the sentiments that were
stated, I am proposing the name to be comp.society.privacy.
  One question that was raised is what the relationship between CSP
and alt.privacy.  There is no relationship between the two groups.  

---------------------Original CFD-----------------------------
  This newsgroup will be moderated and be gatewayed to an Internet
Mailing List.  I propose myself as the Moderator of this newsgroup. I am
currently moderator of the telecom-priv ([email protected])
Internet mailing list.  The telecom-priv mailing list will be folded
into this newsgroup.

   The discussion will center around the effect of technology upon
privacy.  All to often technology is way ahead of the law and society as
it presents us with new devices and applications.  Technology can enhance
and detract from privacy.  For example cryptologic methods can enhance
privacy but sophisicated microphones can detract from it. 
   Topics include but are not restricted to:

	o Telecommunications - Caller-Id, ANI, monitoring of 
phones calls (cellear/cordless), tracking people's locations through use of 

	o Cryptology - enhances citizens rights to safeguard their
information.

	o Data Bases - Big Brother is here but it is not just the Govt,
It is also Corporate America.  The advent of mailing lists has now
reach an extremely high level.  Consider the Social Security Number.

	o High Tech Surveillance Devices - ranging for sophisicated (SP) bugs,
viewing devices, and audio devices.

	o The boon in video cameras and private citizens taping events;
e.g. Rodney King episode.  Video as well as Photographic information can
be forged.  

	o  The effect of technology on privacy in the legal arena (e.g
admissibilty in court of items produced by new and old technology).

	o Misc - National Identifier Numbers, Bar coding currency, electronic 
toll devices mounted on Autos, etc.  

  This group is not intended for the overall issue of privacy, (e.g
should a rape victim have their name published).  

  Currently privacy issues are discussed in many newsgroups but only how
the privacy issue affects that one topic.  There is a need for a single
newsgroup.  The Internet mailing list telecom-priv
([email protected]) was created a year ago to discuss
Caller-Id after the that topic was bounced from comp.dcom.telecom.
Telecom-priv was expanded to include all issues of privacy dealing with
telecom equipment.  
   I am proposing that this group be moderated to keep a high signal to
noise ratio.  Moderation of a newgroup means different thing to different
people.  The moderation that I propose will filter out all administrative
requests, test messages, non-tech/privacy items, and excessive flames.
Nothing is censored.

CALL FOR VOTES TO CREATE NEWSGROUP
----------------------------------

Name:	  comp.society.privacy

Status:   moderator
Moderator:  Dennis Rears <[email protected]>

Charter:  

   This newsgroup is to provide a forum for discussion on the effect of
   technology on privacy. All to often technology is way ahead of the
   law and society as it presents us with new devices and
   applications.  Technology can enhance and detract from privacy.
   This newsgroup will be gatewayed to an internet mailling list.

Votes:

  Votes should be sent to the address:

                     [email protected]

  and may be (but do not have to be) sent by replying to this message.

  Votes should state explicitly whether they are "for" or "against"
  the creation of comp.society.privacy.  Ideally they should contain a
  subject line to the effect of:

   SUBJECT:  I vote YES to comp.society.privacy as proposed
   SUBJECT:  I vote NO to comp.society.privacy as proposed

  The wording does not have to follow these examples precisely but
  it must be unambiguous and unconditional.

  The following will render a vote INVALID:

      - sending it to an address other than the one given above
      - sending it after the voting deadline has passed
      - sending it by a medium other than e-mail
      - posting it to the net
      - qualifying it with a conditional statement such as "I will
        vote for comp.society.privacy provided that..."
      - voting for a proposal with a name or charter other than
        the precise one listed here
      - voting by proxy for someone else

  In the case of duplicate votes from a single user, only the LATEST
  one will be counted.  You may therefore annul a previous vote by
  mailing a new one.

Voting period:

  Votes must arrive at the vote-taker's address before 05:00:00 GMT,
  13 April 1992.

Other information:

  Repeat Calls for Votes and mass acknowledgments of votes received
  to date will be posted periodically during the voting period to
  news.announce.newgroups and  news.groups.

  The final results of the vote will be posted directly after the end
  of the voting period.  In order for comp.society.privacy to be created
  there must be at more "yes" votes then "no" votes AND at least 100 more 
  "yes" votes than "no" votes.
