Doc Searles, someone whose views I admire a lot, writes a great post on this blog about how it's time for US to write our own privacy rules.
Doc's passionate about VRM, Vendor Relationship Management. Here is the definition:
Create an ecosystem of tools, protocols, and services that help users manage vendor relationships.Hmm, I agree, but see my previous post on privacy - people expect high standards and assume that this is the case. They don't read the privacy statements in depth (neither do I). So a much simpler rating system is needed.
