There’s a new sheriff in town, at least if your town is in Newfoundland and Labrador. There’s a nice article that gives you more information about Donovan Molloy below so that you can get to know the newest regulator in Canada.
And while I’m sure Commissioner Molloy has been busy this summer ramping up for the new job, I was equally busy working for you. Why and what was I doing, you ask? Well, I’m at the IAPP headquarters here in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA, where we are knee-deep talking about priorities, plans and ideas for the future. It’s still early days in the planning process, so if there are messages or ideas you have that you want me to articulate to your professional association, now’s a good time to shoot me a note.
And, in between meetings, while I’ve been trying to eat my share of lobster and other seafood while visiting the New Hampshire seacoast, I’ve also had occasion to be inspired by some great art while visiting a nearby gallery. The theme of the art show is Diana’s Baths, a play on the mythical interaction between the goddess Diana and the interloper Actaeon, and, if you’ve ever caught a presentation from the IAPP’s Trevor Hughes, you’ll know that the theme of this ancient tale is actually all about privacy. The artist is Lincoln Perry and you can check out some of his work on his website. It’s interesting stuff and a nice way to remind us that privacy is more than just PIAs and ticking boxes. It’s something deeper that affects us all at a human level.
Hope you take a moment to check it out, to let me know if you have views on the IAPP and Canada, and above all have a great August weekend.
