In an anonymity experiment, Catherine Price attempts

posted by Jason Kottke   Feb 14, 2008

In an anonymity experiment, Catherine Price attempts to recover some of her privacy by living off the information grid.

Pay for everything in cash. Don’t use my regular cellphone, landline or e-mail account. Use an anonymizing service to mask my Web surfing. Stay away from government buildings and airports (too many surveillance cameras), and wear a hat and sunglasses to foil cameras I can’t avoid. Don’t use automatic toll lanes.

For the bit about the cellphone, I’m surprised that she didn’t slip it into an antistatic or other foil-lined bag while it wasn’t in use.
