thousand words. If that's true,

Museum speaks volumes.
A collection of black-and-white
20th century photographic

through the 1970s, offer a
unique perspective of events
that focused media attention
on the Inland Empire.

Banks, Brokerages Dogged by Message Storage Rules
Mandates for IM, e-mail retention pose IT challenges
News Story by Thomas Hoffman
JULY 05, 2004 (COMPUTERWORLD) - NEW YORK -- Information technology managers at financial services
firms are finding it increasingly difficult to comply with a bevy of regulations that require them to archive e-mail
and instant messaging exchanges with customers and ensure that the messages can be retrieved.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the New York Stock Exchange and the
National Association of Securities Dealers have all imposed regulations on the types of
information that brokerages can share with clients via e-mail or IM and how long messages
must be stored so they can be retrieved for regulatory audits.

Film archives a click away
By Louise Perry
July 07, 2004
TEACHING Australian history to high school students or the fundamentals of
politics to undergraduates is often met with glazed eyes, yawns and boredom.
Take the textbooks away and replace them with the drama that film and television
provide and chances are the audience of the 21st century - brought up on a
steady diet of moving images - will perk up.
This theory, coupled with a desire to take film and TV archives from their dusty
shelves and make them widely and easily available, prompted the British Film
Institute to make its archives available online.
United States: HIPAA Privacy One Year Out: Developments and Lessons
25 June 2004
Article by Jennifer Willcox
A little more than a year ago, many of us were frantically
copying Privacy Notices, completing HIPAA training and
tweaking our privacy policies. While some commentators
predicted mass chaos after April 14, 2003 as a result of the
HIPAA privacy requirements, the intervening year has been
manageable, thanks to the diligent efforts of the health
care community in preparing for compliance. HIPAA is not
just a test that a covered entity passed or failed on April
14, 2003, however; compliance is an ongoing process. This
Advisory summarizes some of the past year's important
HIPAA developments, and reminds providers about
compliance deadlines that are now upon us.

You've Got Mail (and Court Says Others Can Read It)
By SAUL HANSELL
When everything is working right, an e-mail message appears to zip instantaneously from the
sender to the recipient's inbox. But in reality, most messages make several momentary stops as
they are processed by various computers en route to their destination.
Those short stops may make no difference to the users, but they make an enormous difference to the
privacy that e-mail is accorded under federal law.
