It's Privacy Awareness Week, if you didn't know. Home Affairs Minister Brendan O'Connor put out a media release about it today, warning in particular of the dangers of social media, making the good point that something that seems innocuous when put online now might not look so innocuous to an employer or a future partner.

O'Connor is also Minister for Privacy, and indeed the first Minister for Privacy. And yesterday he used Sony's abominable handling of the massive Playstation crack to threaten mandatory disclosure laws relating to privacy breaches.
