San Francisco Chronicle
Keep federal archives open
IN A RECENT meeting with Chronicle reporters and
editors, John Dean, White House counsel under President
Nixon and author of the new book, "Worse than Watergate,"
accused the Bush administration of excessive secrecy.
Within months after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, for
example, President Bush used executive orders to issue strict
regulations on Freedom of Information Act requests for
government information and gave himself veto power to seal
papers that are protected by the Presidential Records Act of
1978.
Such efforts to override congressional legislation have
limited the public's access to government documents and
presidential archives.

F.A.A. Official Scrapped Tape of 9/11 Controllers'
Statements
By MATTHEW L. WALD
Published: May 6, 2004
WASHINGTON, May 6 — At least six air traffic controllers who dealt with two of the
hijacked airliners on Sept. 11, 2001, made a tape recording that day describing the events,
but the tape was destroyed by a supervisor without anyone making a transcript or even
listening to it, the Transportation Department said today.

Capturing Content
By Joab Jackson
GCN Staff
To get most from Web sites, feds turn to
content management apps
What’s the advantage of having a content
management system for online information?
Ask the IRS. Its Web content management
system has brought kudos, not complaints, from
the General Accounting Office.
“GAO does an audit every year of the IRS filing
season, and part of that is looking at what is on
the Web site,” said George Coffin, chief of the
tax agency’s public portal. “For several years,
GAO found outdated content.”

County needs clean sweep
By KENT MALLETT
Advocate Reporter
NEWARK -- The county's storage of old records may
be much like the system many residents use in their
homes.
Some important papers are in a dusty, dirty attic. Some
documents could have been thrown away years ago,
but are still gathering dust. Organizing the records is a
major headache that's been avoided for years.

Inmate accounts
vulnerable
Jail records show how theft, fraud could
go undetected
By JULIET V. CASEY
REVIEW-JOURNAL
The North Las Vegas jail's systemic
weaknesses and a lack of controls left
inmate accounts vulnerable to theft and
fraud, according to audits and personnel
records obtained by the Review-Journal.
The findings of a nine-month criminal
investigation of the jail's finances uncovered
more than $400,000 missing from inmate
accounts and on Tuesday prompted North
Las Vegas police to file a complaint with the
Clark County district attorney alleging fraud,
forgery and theft.

Floods damage hospital
records
07 May 2004
Hutt Hospital doctors will have to work with incomplete medical records in
some cases after the February floods damaged more than 10,000 stored
files and 10,000 X-rays.
Because of space limitations, the hospital has a contract with Total Records
Management to store and retrieve closed medical files.
The hospital has revealed that more than 370 boxes of records stored at the
company's Seaview facility were damaged in the February deluge.

Search for Your Family's Black Sheep ...
By PA News Reporter
People were today invited to check for skeletons in the family cupboard by
researching their origins at the National Archives.
They will be able to look for criminal ancestors by accessing a website available
during â€oefamily history week― which starts on Saturday.
Use of the criminal archive HO 47 will enable people to see how a relative’s
past mistake may have influenced the entire family’s history, including
moving it from one country to another, a spokesman for the Archives, based in
Kew, west London, said.

NewsChannel 5 Investigates:
Tape Missing, Includes Discussion About State Contract
A key piece of evidence uncovered in our "Friends in High Places"
investigation of insider state contracts is missing. It's a tape that may
help link a questionable contract directly to the office of former Gov.
Don Sundquist.
The tape may be the only tape-recorded discussion of how
friend-of-the-governor John Stamps was given an exclusive, no-bid
contract that would be worth almost $2 million.

The Prague Post
Worker privacy in the EU
By Edward Asu
For The Prague Post
(May 6, 2004)
For years, various national courts have struggled with the rights of employees to a
reasonable expectation of privacy in internal and external e-mails and voice messages
versus an employer's legitimate interests in recording and reviewing employee
communications.
Employers have long held the right to monitor activities on the job, including phone
calls and the use of e-mail, the Internet and computer files. Employers say they need
this right to prevent exposure to criminal acts by outsiders and to employee crime.

CDs, DVDs not so immortal
(AP) -- Dan Koster was unpacking some
of his more than 2,000 CDs after a move
when he noticed something strange.
Some of the discs, which he always took
good care of, wouldn't play properly.
Koster, a Web and graphic designer for
Queens University of Charlotte, North
Carolina, took one that was skipping
pretty badly and held it up to the light.

Got CD Rot? You'd Best Check Your Collection
by Vern Seward, 8:00 AM CDT, May 6th, 2004
Vinyl produces a warm sound, but CDs are
immortal, or so we were led to believe: Barring
fire, teething babies, and aunts who mistake you
favorite CD for a newfangled hot pad, CDs are
suppose to last a lifetime with minimum care as
compared to vinyl records.

A Minuscule Drive, Except for the Memory
By ANDREW ZIPERN
Published: May 6, 2004
.S.B. drives seem to get ever smaller, but now a new model from Pretec claims to be
the tiniest ever. Less than two inches long and weighing less than a quarter of an
ounce, the folding iDisk Tiny 2.0 has a surface area slightly smaller than that of a
United States quarter. Compatible with machines running the newer Windows, Macintosh
and Linux operating systems, this diminutive flash drive requires no external power
source and can pack away up to a gigabyte of data.

Playing Old Records
(No Needle Required)
By ANNE EISENBERG
Published: May 6, 2004
HE traditional way to preserve old
sound recordings is to play them,
typically with a stylus, and then
convert the sound into a file that can be
stored digitally. But two physicists at the
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in
California have developed a new way to
preserve the contents of old discs and wax
cylinders: they take pictures of the groove
instead of dropping a needle into it.

Managing the deluge
New tools can help you keep control over the
flood of e-mail records
E-mail has generated a whole new category of
electronic records.
The messages have enormously variable sizes
and difficult-to-classify subject matter, and can
carry attachments, nonstandard formats and
viruses. You can have uncertainty regarding
their true origins and the true intended
recipients. And it exists in a paradigm in which
the precise sequence and time stamps of
messages could be critical to placing a
message’s content in proper context.
