Link: info NeoGnostic: Two new sites.

Chris at info NeoGnostic, who doesn’t seem to have posted for a while (although that could just be Bloglines) writes about the Open Rights Group. He adds: "They also have a blog, which pointed me to website I never expected to visit, let alone recommend(!) – 10 Downing Street. It has a new petition site that mySociety has built for it, which allows anyone to set up a petition and collect signatures."

Two petitions that Chris found there are one to scrap the proposed introduction of identity cards; and another to allow an exception to copyright law to give individuals the right to create a private copy for their own personal use. But there are 238 petitions there, so plenty to vote for or against.
