Deaf ears

Via Ideal Government we see that Jerry Fishenden, Microsoft UK's lead technology advisor, has added his voice to those of the other security experts concerned about information-sharing:
Ultimately, for many of us it will probably just be an inconvenience and a nuisance when inappropriate access and use is made of our personal information. It will add to the growing problem of identity-related fraud and involve us and public agencies in expensive rectification processes. But what concerns me more is when this same thinking is applied to topics such as children at risk or our medical records. At worse, in these environments the inevitable consequences that will arise from information passing into the wrong hands will be irreversible.
To borrow Ideal Government's format: wibbi the government started listening to people who know what they're talking about?
