Don't get me wrong: I'm all for serious privacy ethics, for privacy sensitivity, for privacy by design. But I'm not a fan of privacy-bureaucracy-drag. Europe, as one would expect, developed the world's most extreme form of bureaucracy-drag, when it invented the notion of bureaucratic "prior approval" for new technologies. That means that a new technology is dependent on a bureaucracy's prior approval before being launched.

Researchers from the EDRi group were unable to retrieve such requirements within the proposals, but campaigners and lobbyists are curious about hidden knowledge at Google.
