JAMES L. WAYMAN has been the director of the Biometrics Test Center at San Jose State University in San Jose, California, since 1995. The center is funded by the United States and other countries to develop standards and scientific test and analysis methods and to advise on the use or nonuse of biometric identification technologies. The test center served as the U.S. National Biometrics Test Center from 1997 to 2000. Dr. Wayman received the Ph.D. degree in engineering from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1980 and joined the faculty of the Department of Mathematics at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School in 1981. In 1986, he became a full-time researcher for the Department of Defense in the areas of technical security and biometrics. Dr. Wayman holds three patents in speech processing and is the author of dozens of articles in books, technical journals, and conference proceedings on biometrics, speech compression, acoustics, and network control.

DANIEL J. WEITZNER is director of the World Wide Web Consortium's Technology and Society activities. As such, he is responsible for development of technology standards that enable the Web to address social, legal, and public policy concerns such as privacy, free speech, protection of minors, authentication, intellectual property, and identification. He is also the W3C's chief liaison to public policy communities around the world and a member of the ICANN Protocol Supporting Organization's Protocol Council. Mr. Weitzner holds a research appointment at MIT's Laboratory for Computer Science and teaches Internet public policy at MIT. Before joining the W3C, Mr. Weitzner was cofounder and deputy director of the Center for Democracy and Technology, an Internet civil liberties organization in Washington, D.C. He was also deputy policy director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. As a leading figure in the Internet public policy community, he was the first to advocate user control technologies such as content filtering and rating to protect children and avoid government censorship of the Internet. These arguments played a critical role in the 1997 U.S. Supreme Court case Reno v. ACLU, awarding the highest free speech protections to the Internet. He successfully advocated the adoption of amendments to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, creating new privacy protections for online transactional information such as Web site access logs. Mr. Weitzner has a degree in law from Buffalo Law School and a B.A. in philosophy from Swarthmore College. His pub
