Burned by CAPPS

Farhad Manjoo in Salon: “‘Please step to the side, sir.’” Good article summarizing recent occurrences around airline screening, including newly-FOIA’d complaints of customers mistakenly profiled on the “no fly” blacklist. Also points to the MIT grad student paper on the flaws in CAPPS, which I had forgotten about. A nice complement to the earlier piece in the Data Mining Review that I wrote about last week.
