I lurked for awhile on flyer talk, but ended up never posting. Seems like a good forum, but the constant thread movement was too jarring for me. Other relevant stuff -- I used to fly all the time for work, and was a gold member on Alaska Airlines, but when the TSA instituted their latest round of 'security' measures last year I decided that enough was enough -- I refuse to subject myself to unnecessary radiation, the privacy invasions, and the sexual assaults. Now I drive and take the train. And I occasionally call Alaska and let them know why. My legal work focuses on all things related to consumer privacy. I occasionally work with other privacy organizations (like EFF, EPIC, CDT, PRC, etc) in coalitions. Happy to be here! And here's hoping that if I press 'create thread' my post will be posted (I'm not always great at this).
