Ferociously busy with work so lax with the posting but here are a few items:
I'm looking at putting together an online resource which will collate all the information published regarding the blacklisting scandal. This is in conjunction with Spinwatch. If you've got info/ideas which you think should be on such a site let me know. Meanwhile a Blacklisting Support Group has been set up. See my article in tomorrow's Tribune or a piece on Labournet.
Since January 26 2006: Two new children for me, a new president for America, a new Prime Minister for Great Britain, Spurs still providing comedy light relief for football fans. It's also the day I put in an FOI request to the National Offender Management Service (NOMS). Yesterday I got a letter from the ICO saying they upheld my appeal that NOMS should release me the info I asked for.
Three-and-a-half years. Including 250 days for them to carry out an internal review when the ICO says it should take 40 at most. Shouldn't be surprised as the BBC's Martin Rosenbaum made clear a year ago.
Hopefully the results are going to end up in a newspaper article so that will be some satisfaction.
Finaly: via a tweet from Tom Watson MP this story about state-sponsored spyware in Blackberrys. Why would you call your surveillance app Interceptor though? Doesn't that kind of give the game away?
