Who needs privacy anyway?

Everyone’s favorite Metro Atlanta based data aggregator ChoicePoint has sent notice to an additional 17,000 consumers that their personal information has been compromised. From the Atlanta Business Chronicle. For more information on ChoicePoint take a look at EPIC’s ChoicePoint page.

    At this point I am kinda surprised that they just didn’t post all of the names on their website.

    Did they ever send a notice about compromising votes? I used the 100% absolute foolproof no reciept needed no code reviewed computer voting device yesterday and it just gave me similar warm fuzzies. Do they make those or do they just purge names?

    To my knowledge all of the electronic voting machines in Georgia are made by Diebold. However EFF had a funny April Fool’s story on ChoicePoint and Diebold this year.
