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.
