Over the past few weeks I’ve seen the addition of two privacy blogs/bloggers that I wanted to share:

1) Google’s blog features contributions from Peter Fleischer, Global Privacy Counsel. He’s commented on its new data retention policy as well as its personalized search features. I’m glad to hear that they are taking some more proactive steps to discuss concerns about privacy in a non-patronizing manner. Google has also added a Google security blog, appropriately added just in time for its acquisition of GreenBorder.

2) Microsoft has added a privacy blog entitled The Data Privacy Imperative. I am interested to hear its thoughts moving forward, although I do find it a bit odd that the only two posts other than the inaugural one to date are by Erik Bratt (the Marketing Communications Manager) rather than technical members of the privacy team.
