Re: 2010 Census: Beware the State’s Assault on Privacy!

Some early results of phase 1 browsing the web looking at what other opinions are for 2010 census requirements. First up, a rather lame article from USA Today (2008).

This article  zig zags back and forth between the simple task at hand - finding people to count, then counting them - and the terrible task this presents to USG. USA Today's author (Haya El Nasser - how's that for a traditional American-sounding name ? ;)  is clearly siding with USG and its apparent plight in all of this.

 To count them, the Census Bureau first has to find them. Woe is you USG, but find them and count them. Complicating the task is a widespread climate of suspicion about personal data landing in the wrong hands and government's increased surveillance power. How much personal data is needed to count a person?  Much of the unease is engendered by the growing problem of identity theft and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.  Oh jeez, what the bleep does counting heads have to do with 911? Why mix this in with the subject? Show time! If it has not already done so, perhaps USG should consult with IBM. During WWII it was awfully  thorough, and its task was not so simple as finding all heads (like shooting fish in a barrel) but with finding finding and counting very specific heads (surgically finding many small fish in gigantic barrel) from all across Germany, by the millions.
