CHARTER OF COMP.SOCIETY.PRIVACY

   This newsgroup is to provide a forum for discussion on the effect of
   technology on privacy. All to often technology is way ahead of the
   law and society as it presents us with new devices and
   applications.  Technology can enhance and detract from privacy.
   This newsgroup will be gatewayed to an internet mailling list.

creation by 189:16 as reported in news.announce.newgroups on 15 Apr 1992.
