Submission + - Feds May Soon Be Allowed to Use Cookies (nextgov.com) 1

fast66 writes: "The White House may lift its policy barring federal Web sites from tracking users' online behavior. In place since 2000, the cookie policy issued by the Office of Management and Budget was intended to protect citizen privacy but has sparked criticism — even from White House officials — for hampering citizen outreach. 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."
