Beware of Your Digital Tracks

I had a great time talking with Tim Zeller of the New York Times last week about metadata in Word and other documents and other ways you can find hidden data in electronic documents.
Tim was kind enough to quote me in today’s article in the NY Times called “Beware of Your Trail of Digital Fingerprints.”
It’s a good, and timely, article. There have been a number of public disclosures of revisions and hidden data recently, as the article describes.
It’s been fun getting emails today from friends who saw the article. It’s also fun to read the NYT convention of referring me to as “Mr. Kennedy.”
I recommend that you read this article and start doing some thinking about the metadata issue. I’ve written about it on this blog and on the Between Lawyers blog as well.
Other legal bloggers have been in the newspapers lately , too, as Steve Nipper mentioned today. I’m sure we’ll be comaring notes on being in the papers at BlawgThink.

    You are too cool! To be quoted as “Mr. Kennedy” in the NYT. Reminds me of the Lou Reed Live from the Bottom Line LP “Take no Prisoners”. He complains about being called “Mr. Reed” by Robert Christgau. His conclusion – “F*** Robert Christgau and his Mr. Reed”.
