Collaborative Notes: Anonymity Online

This discussion will share experiences of anonymity and use of psuedonyms online, including:  Users : why we use anonymity, using different profiles for different purposes, whether and when to unmask. Service providers: how best to balance privacy, identity protection and business needs for customer identification. Network operators: what’s all the fuss: is anonymity technically possible anyway?
