"Do most of your customers disclose to their employees that they're being monitored, and what are the legal issues surrounding that?
Everybody is moving to full disclosure. We encourage it.
Every company has a right to monitor an employee while they're at work, whether it be phone or e-mail.
Do your clients usually monitor everyone at the company?
We've had executives that say, "I don't want myself to be monitored." CEOs are never going to be monitored. "

Study: Minorities get better auto deals online - Tech News - CNET.com

Women and minority automobile buyers generally pay more than white men for the same cars, but they can erase that difference by buying over the Internet rather than through car dealerships, according to a study released Tuesday.

From a Stanford symposium on the Web, a brief report on that rare, (lucky?) Valley dweller with an upbeat outlook. Choice excerpts:

"We need to work to ensure that the original values of the Web endure." ... Paul Saffo (here he is again!) says: "There's never been a better time to think about where the Web is going, and everybody has a lot of time to think about it. ... Most ideas in Silicon Valley take 20 years to become an overnight success."

Nathaniel Borenstein (remember him, c'punks?) says, "from the burned fields left behind by the Web's wildfire, will the pre-Web Internet reemerge? ... Once, the Net was a genuine commons. ... we have to acknowledge that the commons has been destroyed. That doesn't mean that we can't rebuild it."

The net, a commons? Borenstein's been reading some Lessig lately, maybe?
