fast66 writes "The White House may lift its policy barring federal Web sites from tracking users' online behavior.

On Friday, Bev Godwin, the director of online resources and interagency development at the White House's new media office, blogged on the White House Web site, "We want to use cookies for good, not evil" — and invited the public to comment on cookies through various online channels, including the Office of Science and Technology Policy blog."
