FTC blogs on future of consumer protection

The Federal Trade Commission last week launched a blog designed to serve as a lead-in to November public hearings on protecting consumers in the face of new technologies. The blog, Tech-ade Blog, will continue up to and during the Nov. 6-8 hearings, Protecting Consumers in the Next Tech-ade. It will be written primarily by a recent college graduate who works as a paralegal in the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. An introductory post explains:

I will be posting interviews with experts who can help illuminate not only the changes anticipated over the next ten years in demographics, business practices, and technology, but also the impact these changes will have on American consumers. From time to time, guest bloggers may also be featured.
