Thought some readers of this blog might be interested in Data Protection Day, tomorrow, January 28. The Council of Europe established this day to raise awareness of data privacy and data protection issues and how we, as technology professionals, can do something about it.  You can read more about their aims here.

Microsoft is joining in by holding a Data Privacy Day event in San Francisco at the San Francisco Public Library and participating in an event in Brussels, Belgium. Lot’s of information from about privacy for IT, government, teachers, students, and parents here.
