Hawaii may keep track of all Web sites visited

The Draconian bill SOPA/PIPA lost traction at the federal level. The next move,  pass internet bills at State levels. I have said this many times in previous posts, you are already under surveillance on the internet, cellphones, automobiles…. Passing laws conditions the populous to accept intrusion

Hawaii’s legislature is weighing an unprecedented proposal to curb the privacy of Aloha State residents: requiring Internet providers to keep track of every Web site their customers visit.

Its House of Representatives has scheduled a hearing this morning on a new bill (PDF) requiring the creation of virtual dossiers on state residents. The measure, H.B. 2288, says “Internet destination history information” and “subscriber’s information” such as name and address must be saved for two years.

H.B. 2288, which was introduced Friday, says the dossiers must include a list of Internet Protocol addresses and domain names visited. Democratic Rep. John Mizuno of Oahu is the lead sponsor; Mizuno also introduced H.B. 2287, a computer crime bill, at the same time last week.
