Big Brother As Cookie Monster?

I'm generally well behind the curve on most issues. Were these truly medieval times, my shield would bear the image of Hegel's Owl of Minerva, which, famously, settles only at dusk. But a friend passed along the following interview with Cindy Cohn, legal director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It turns out the Obama administration is hording cookies. Visit a government website on YouTube and you'll leave a record. Query? What does an administration devoted to transparency and openness in Government need with all this information. According to Cohn, even the Bush administration showed more sensitivity.

Check out part one of the interview at the following link. Houndcat's interviewing Cohn at the Daily Kos.
