FAA to watch workers' e-mail

Federal Aviation Administration employees may want to think twice before

they click "send" on personal e-mail messages.

The FAA will begin to monitor its employees' Internet use starting in October

one day per week.

Internet monitoring is consistent with what other government agencies and

the private sector are doing to combat Internet misuse and make decisions

about how to optimize their networks, said Les Dorr, an FAA spokesman.

The 24-hour monitoring periods will be chosen at random, and FAA employees

will review the results. The FAA will buy software to automate the monitoring

this month. FAA does not anticipate blocking any sites, Dorr said.
