24-questions-from-hhs

ComputerWorld has the list of 24 questions HHS had for Piedmont Hospital (where my three children were born, incidentally, as well as my wife, though that was earlier). Adam points to an article on law.com about the government's increased focus on HIPAA compliance which includes this choice quote from Joseph Lazzarotti of Jackson Lewis' White Plains, N.Y., office and what he advises his clients:

"I want them to know that HIPAA does really mean something and the government is going to do something about it. What that is, well, it's more than they were doing yesterday," Lazzarotti said.
Of course, that is not saying much since there have only been 4 convictions out of 26,000 complaints.

myopenid-security-fix

Josh Hoyt has a preliminary notice about a security fix for MyOpenID. It's limited (at least on MyOpenID) to Safari users, so it's not a big deal. Josh considers it a flaw in the way Safari handles javascript security. But it is clear that OpenID is going through some growing pains as a protocol, which is natural and healthy. I'm impressed with the way the community is handling this vulnerability.
