Homeland Security sets date for first privacy board meeting

The Department of Homeland Security raised some eyebrows last month when it appointed a representative of Claria, a prominent "adware" maker, to a privacy advisory board.

Now we have a chance to see whether the inclusion of Claria/Gator vice president D. Reed Freeman will make a difference in the committee's discussions about privacy and security. The DHS announced this week that the committee's first meeting will be Apr. 6 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC.

News.com readers are encouraged to show up and grab a microphone. The announcement says: "In order to permit as much public participation as possible, speakers should limit their remarks to two minutes."

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube.
