U.S. Government Calls for Comments on Cookie Policy

The U.S

The U.S. Office of Science and Technology Policy put out a request for comments Friday on proposed changes to its Web tracking policy for government sites. “The goal of this review is to develop a new policy that allows the Federal Government to continue to protect the privacy of people who visit Federal websites while, at the same time, making these websites more user-friendly, providing better customer service, and allowing for enhanced web analytics,” stated the office in a blog post.

According to the post, a three-tiered approach is being considered involving single- and multi- session technologies for Web traffic analysis and personal preference settings. So far, the comments are making for a lively, educated conversation. Of course, there are always a few offbeat remarks to be expected. This is my favorite so far:

One thing you should do is monetize this site and save us on tax’s. I don’t know if that’s legal but if it saves us money do it. With The President using a Blackberry you could create a blackberry site like http://blackberrystormsale.com and make enough to give us all a break.

Evidently this commentator hasn’t heard about the industry’s plummeting CPMs….
