Dhar, the other blog on which we were discussing privacy issues has blocked anon comments, so here's my response:(P.S. You guys were great, I hope you take this in the right spirit.)You guys pointed out wiki articles, but I am not sure if you understood exactly what the articles are saying. For eg., PII article says " Moreover, sometimes multiple pieces of information, none of which are PII, may uniquely identify a person when brought together;". This is the crux of what I was saying and what you guys missed. None of the pointers shown in the data point to me, but you can if you choose to, easily identify me via looking at them in totality. I am pretty sure the author of the blog knows who I am, even though my comments are anonymous. If he doesn't, it's because, a gentleman that he is, has chosen not to look at the data. Not because the data was not there. Let me point to a technial article, unlike the media articles used as evidence in the discussion. http://www.cs.cornell.edu/~mvnak/pubs/ldiversity-icde06.pdfThis article clearly talks about how with background information, attackers (in our case, the blog owner) can breach privacy. The blog owner knows something more than a casual reader, say you, knows. I am not going to tell you exactly what he knows, for obvious reasons. Read the wiki articles again, if I am not being clear."For example, there may be only one Inuit person named Steve in the town of Lincoln Park, Michigan".
l iked this content/ article. I would certainly recommend the same to others as well.
good post Thanks for sharing it
