Comment on The End of Anonymity

I think privacy and anonymity are two very different things.
think about your bank account, it's private, but not anonymous...

I'm all for freedom, but as a internet developer for more than a decade, I understand the need for validating/tracking user data and location. people freak out about big companies holding information about them, but in the end it's just about money.
nobody wants to read your personal diary, they just want to show you the right ADs and make some profit out of your consumer habits. so far, all the information one shares in twitter, facebook, foursquare and sorts are consensual and voluntary. as long as it doesn't change, I'm okey.
