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."
