Don't fear Internet anonymity tools

Monday, 16 August 2004, 11:54 AM EST

When I write this weekly column, I'm anything but anonymous. My name, e-mail address and picture are displayed prominently, and it doesn't exactly take elite hacker skills to figure out my office phone number.

In the other areas of my life, however, I like to stay anonymous. I don't want the people working at a bookstore to know not only every book I've ever read but also every book I've ever taken off the shelf. I don't want the networks and cable companies to know every TV show or movie I watch. And I certainly don't want the phone company listening to my calls to determine what kinds of products I might want to buy.
