Data Protection Act

Merde. We’re about to hit a situation where we’ve half a dozen people phone-bashing and generally agitating for SciCast. We’ll be spread around different organisations and even cities, and we’ll all be doing this part-time. Coordination and ‘the big picture’ is going to be hard.

I’d love to use Highrise to bring us all together. Unfortunately… that would be exporting personal information to the US. Which is, one suspects, a bit of a no-no when it comes to the Data Protection Act. Dang.

Discussion in the Highrise forums. On the other hand, 37signals’ hosts, Rackspace, are on the Safe Harbor list (notes about which are here).

I guess I’m going to have to read up on what all this stuff means…
