It's clear at this point that the momentum has shifted in favor of a federal privacy bill in the U.S. The questions are: What will that bill look like, who will sponsor something both the tech community and advocates can live with, and will it actually happen this year?

"We’re increasingly feeling that other countries, particularly Europe, are in the lead," he said. He wants that to change.
