Not just a candy bar for your password

Good post on the Identity Trail by Hilary Young called "Confessions of a closet Airmiles collector." It's about the differences between privacy and anonymity, the tradeoffs we make of privacy for meterial/financial advantage and why there is no "one size fits all" answer to the questions about identity privacy. The bottom line is that we all need to take the time to consider the pros and cons of giving up facets of our privacy "so that we as a society can make informed decisions about what we want to happen." Knee-jerk reactions are NOT encouraged.
