“As far as arbitrary periods of time for measuring progress go, 100 days is pretty neat,” writes New Zealand Privacy Commissioner John Edwards in the first post of his office’s new blog. “Communication is key to my mission of ‘making privacy easy’ and it is an important part of building public confidence in the role the office plays in safeguarding privacy and personal information.” In that vein, the office has launched a blog to offer an opportunity for people in the office to provide commentary on developments as well as enabling a “free-ranging discussion” in the comments section. “There can be a gap between what we assume are public attitudes to privacy issues, and what people actually think,” Edwards writes. “This blog, with your comments, will give us another way of taking the temperature, and reality-checking some of our assumptions.”
