I participated at barcampLondon8 at the weekend. A unconference format of event that uses open space techniques to allow a community to self form and to collectively learn and thus enable individual to self learn. An unconference does not make much sense to most new to the concept but here is its magic: with no specific planning, I attended a series of sessions that were on topics that I currently have a big need to learn and solve problems around. I had no idea who was turning up or that those topics would put forward before I turned up. But they did and guess what, this sort of experiences happens every time I attend such events. Talking to others, this seems to be a shared outcome.
I lead a session on the LifestyleLinking open source project and I participated in session on bee keeping, beginners guide to jQuery, future of barcampLondon, DIY living sustainable, what is the semantic web?, Tiddly wiki, open source charting app, future of HTML ,HTTP what is 200 call 401 etc, Agile development, how to start and contribute to an open source project, crowding sourcing and school IT education. Not forgetting informal chats on Monty Hall problem, that was at 5am Sunday morning. Probably a term of University education in a weekend. Thank you to all barcampers for making the event the magic it was.

what are the privacy laws
cookie used in EU including norway etc then you fall under those privacy laws
Can individual stop processing of personal data? Should get consent but if not directly then OK? tick box filled in already? will change status presumed???
What is meant by free consent? Law looking at what this actually means right now.
individual need to show demonstrate considerable distress, so hard prove.
is it a criminal offense? yes but need to prove all the above which seem to be hard and practically make that ability prove impossible?
Compensation if proven, financial payments can be won and those that had knock on affects
some exemptions: household exemption personal family friends below dunbar number
There is a journalist exemption but apart from that the rules apply ie not allowed to publish private data with out consent.
data directive EU wide, UK a bit more restrictive
