New privacy group – Based at University of Denver

A new group investigating privacy concerns in the information age will be based at the University of Denver, the New York Times reported July 26.

The Privacy Center will gather data on whether and how personal information is captured by software makers, operators of communications systems and Internet services. Its initial focus will be on wireless phones with Web access, digital television set-top boxes, and other new technologies.

The center will be funded by the Privacy Foundation, a Denver-based nonprofit that is largely financed by Peter Barton, a Denver entrepreneur and former chief executive of the Liberty Media Corporation.
