TOSBack | The Terms-Of-Service Tracker. Fantastic idea (and implementation) from the EFF—a site that currently tracks 44 website policy documents and highlights changes to them using a diff engine (from Drupal). A global RSS feed is available—it would be useful if individual feeds for different sites and organisations were also provided. # 7th June 2009, 10:49 am
