    Transcript for FTC Spyware Workshop Available

    Hi All:

    Today the FTC finally made a complete transcript of its April 19 Spyware Workshop available for download:

    http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/workshops/spyware/transcript.pdf

    It's 298 pages and contains no index or bookmarks whatsoever. I've taken the liberty of creating a bookmarked version, which you can download here:

    http://www.staff.uiuc.edu/~ehowes/transcript-idx.pdf

    The bookmarks make it much easier to navigate and find things.

    I've done some preliminary checking against my posted comments on all six panels ( http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,10018653~mode=flat ). For the most part my memory of specific incidents was dead-on, though there are a few minor corrections that I will have to note. More on that later.

    In any case, I hope you enjoy reading for yourself the transcript of what we've been talking about for the past month.

    Best,

    Eric L. Howes
