Jonathan Mayer To 'Do Not Track' Working Group: I Quit

Cyber Fellow Jonathan Mayer, a Stanford graduate student and online privacy advocate, resigned from a working group tasked with developing a browser add-on known as "Do Not Track." The working group includes government officials, ad agencies, and privacy firms. 

The group has been unable to meet deadlines and according to Mayer, does not have a process in place for moving forward. He has created a cookie-blocking patch and is moving forward with testing it for Mozilla's Firefox browser.
