And A Fond Farewell

Two esteemed members of FPF’s Advisory Board have recently departed for higher callings. This summer, Peter Swire joined the Obama Administration as Special Assistant to the President for Economic Policy at the National Economic Council. A professor at Ohio State’s law school and an internationally recognized privacy expert, Peter had acted as the “White House Counselor for Privacy” during the Clinton Administration. His counsel to FPF has been invaluable.

Daniel Weitzner is now the Associate Administrator for the Office of Policy Analysis & Development at the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration. As Director of the Decentralized Information Group MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and Technology & Society Policy Director at the World Wide Web Consortium,,Danny still found some time to help shape our thinking about privacy.

Both Peter and Daniel joined the FPF Advisory Board at our inception. Our nation is well-served by having these two luminaries join the Administration.

Jodie Bernstein, Lifetime Achiever

A richly deserved tip of the hat is due to FPF Advisory Board member Joan “Jodie” Bernstein. Citing her “brilliant legal skills,” American Lawyer last week bestowed upon her its prestigious “Lifetime Achiever” award. This award goes to a select group of attorneys who, in the opinion of the magazine, have transformed the practice of law through leadership in public service and private practice.

In our view, it’s a fitting tribute for someone whose six decades of legal service have made her one of the nation’s most respected voices for consumer rights and privacy.
