News: Gates calls for new privacy law

News: Gates calls for new privacy law:
I thought this was an interesting news bit. Bill Gates is apparently trying to advocate privacy laws at a personal level for consumers. What's really funny is how he specifically mentions HIPAA as going too far and representing annoyance to consumers rather than service.

Well, working at a hospital, all I have to say is WERD homie!!!!! HIPAA has frustrated so many patients that walk into our doors, the initial reaction is that they think we've completely lost our brains with some of the asinine privacy protection we have to enforce on them. While I love the idea of privacy, I also love the idea of sensible privacy.

Here's kudos to Bill for speaking on this type of stuff.
