One quibble: the EO is mostly about flows from govt. to private sector 
and since there is no immunity provided like under other legislative 
proposals, it seems reasonable that sharing in the other direction will 
be circumspect. Would love to hear other thoughts on this. Glad to see 
a section on privacy although we'll have to wait to see if that ends up 
meaning much. best, Joe
