At a conference held today by the Progress & Freedom Foundation, Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina called for government legislation to ensure privacy on the Web. “I think we in the technology industry have fallen in love with technology. And in the end it is not about the technology… privacy and security, or trust, are vital to consumers, and that is what we should focus on. There is a role for legislation.” Privacy has long been a thorn in the side of the Internet, its users, and those companies that seek to maximize the open nature of the Web.
