The Need for ChoicePoint

I've recently started following the Open Society Paradox, written by Dennis Bailey. Compared to most discussions of privacy on the internet, he's a contrarian advocating more openness and greater access to personal information. While this position may not be very prevalent in the blogosphere, his is a perspective that must be listened to. In one of his most recent postings (The Open Society Paradox: The Need for ChoicePoint) he argues that the recent decision made by ChoicePoint to cut off their criminal records check service may place people in danger, particularly those who hire people to work in their homes.
